This ALMA Fundraiser and Mosaic Workshop has never been offered before! This fantastic event includes a 3-hour mosaic workshop where participants will construct a personal hot air balloon mosaic to take home.  Following the workshop, ALMA will be providing an authentic New Mexican dinner and then you will get to enjoy a beautiful view of the Balloon Glow event from the museum’s comfortable lawn, overlooking the park.  ALMA artists and apprentices have handmade hot air balloon tiles specifically for this event from raw clay, individually glazed them and kiln fired the tiles for participants to use in their mosaics.  Don’t miss this exciting event and opportunity to take home art and memories of Albuquerque’s famous hot air balloon event!
