Past Events

Winter 2020

Puppet Making Workshop

We got the opportunity to work with the elementary students at this local private catholic school which serves mostly Jicarilla Apache children from Dulce, NM. We get one zoom session each week with every class. All of the materials for the puppet workshops were donated by community members. We are not allowed to take pictures of the students but we will work on getting testimonials.

Fall 2020

LIVE Streaming Concert

Using Facebook LIVE, we hosted a fall concert featuring 5 artists! It was a donation based event, that was coordinated by mostly volunteers. They helped set up the stage, organize the logistics of live streaming, and helping get the word out to the whole community, and beyond! Artists were Miguel Duran and Ruben Hernandez of Vintage Rock; vocalists Beth Filiowich and Karen Crawford; and Al Marino with blues and rock.

Summer 2020

Creativity Bags

We got fabric donated and volunteers sewed the colorful, reusable bags.  A few local businesses took donations of art supplies from the community, and with donated money we were able to buy even more. Volunteers filled the bags with a mix of the goodies. The bags were available at a few local spots, with social media getting the word out. We distributed 137 art supply care packages.
