Professional artist and educator, Gabriel Pacheco, leads gallery visits and artmaking sessions through this weekly art class. During the class, students gain inspiration from the galleries, studios, and hallways of Mana Contemporary. Through vocabulary exercises, critiques, and a wide range of artmaking techniques, children learn to express themselves both visually and verbally.
