Connecting Seattle to Mexico - A hands on workshop with artist Fulgencio Lazo
Since the 1990's Fulgencio Lazo has worked with Museums and Schools to create tapetes (sand paintings) for Día de los muertos celebrations. Fulgencio's tapetes are inspired by Oaxaca's beautiful traditions for celebrating Día de los muertos. In this workshop Fulgencio will share about his new art book, current body of work, and he and will talk about the process for creating a tapete. Participants will learn by doing as they make mini tapetes of their own.
Trained as a printmaker, Lazo works predominantly with acrylics on canvas in his studios in Seattle and Oaxaca, Mexico. He has had over 40 solo shows throughout the United States, Mexico, Japan and France, and has numerous pieces in public collections. He enjoys making installations for Day of the Dead at many Seattle area museums, schools and community centers.
