Work with an Artist in the Taller at CelebrARTE: Revive

Every CelebrARTE, the Taller is the spot to make art with a maestro (master artist). A taller, pronounced “tay-yair,” is an artist’s workshop, and this learning format has a very long history in the arts of Latin America. In a taller/workshop aspiring artists learn as a group by working hands-on with the guidance of the master-artist. Every month, we partner with professional artists to lead the workshop. More
