Tin Foil Art | Arte en Aluminio with Alexandra Gonzalez

Join us and Alexandra Gonzalez of Artesanas Mexicanas as we discover how to turn a common kitchen staple into a work of art! Alexandra leads this workshop during which you will take a plain piece of tin foil and, in a few short steps, transform it into a colorful art piece to display in your home. You’ll wrap aluminum around cardboard, select an image, transfer it to the foil, and then (our favorite part) bring it to life with color!

ARTIST BIO:

My name is Alexandra Gonzalez and I am originally from Puebla Mexico. I am very proud of my roots and that is why I’m dedicated to share my culture and traditions with others including the new generation who were born in this country with Hispanic parents. I hope that they too will feel proud of their origins and their identity. Through Folkloric dance and visual arts, I intend to sow my seed in the community and train leaders. I am currently working in an educational program at Creative Alliance, teaching Folk dance to third grade children. I also founded a support program for young people at Creative Alliance with a goal to empower their skills and strengthen their ideas in the community through dance. I belong to a beautiful group of women called Artesanas Mexicanas and I have a beautiful family who inspire me and support my dreams.
