Mingei Makers Workshop | Mingei International Museum

Make with exhibiting artist, Roberto Benavidez! In this hands-on piñata workshop, participants will explore the technique of painting with paper.

Benavidez is a figurative sculptor from South Texas, now based in Los Angeles, specializing in the piñata form. Benavidez plays with underlying themes of race, ephemerality, beauty, and sin, layered with his identity as a mixed-race queer artist, with a focus on impeccable craftsmanship.

All materials and light refreshments will be provided.

This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org.
