Workshop: Found Object Sculpture with Eliza Naranjo Morse

516 ARTS welcomes back artist Eliza Naranjo Morse (from Octopus Dreams, 2013) for a hands-on workshop in the gallery for teens and adults. With simple materials and tricks, students will create sharp looking little sculptures, boxed and wrapped with beautiful papers and ribbons to help participants prepare for the holiday season. Eliza Naranjo Morse is of mixed heritage from Santa Clara Pueblo, and lives in Española, New Mexico. Her process has been greatly defined by her elders' information, drawing, color, cartoons, clay, emotions, navigating the human experience, and searching for balance. She has shown her work locally as well as internationally and currently keeps her studio at an old Post Office in Chimayo, New Mexico. All levels welcome. Materials provided, but participants can bring a small object to incorporate in their sculptures.
