Frida’s Huipil: Art Workshop with Andrea Arroyo at Hudson River Museum

Frida’s Huipil: Art Workshop with Andrea Arroyo

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Join award-winning, contemporary artist Andrea Arroyo in an open-ended, hands-on workshop inspired by Frida Kahlo’s art, life, and her relationship with artist Diego Rivera. Create a mixed-media work in the shape of a huipil, a traditional, loose-fitting blouse from Mexico, using cut paper, collage, fabric, ribbon, beads, and other adornments. Representations of the huipil can be seen in both The World of Frida and Frida Kahlo in Context. Arroyo, a self-described Mexican-New Yorker artist, produces public art, paintings, drawings, and site-specific installations examining social justice issues and the status of women in society.

Recommended for ages 13+. This program will be conducted in English and Spanish.
