We are excited to announce a very special auction to benefit our beloved traditional New Mexican Woodcarving Program!
This program provides an interdisciplinary experience for sixth-grade students who study the art and history of Islamic culture. The students practice precision in measurement and calculation as they develop their own design patterns inspired by the rich Moorish traditions brought to our region from Spain. Then, with the focus, patience, and precision necessary to the task, the girls apprentice with a master woodcarver, Miguel Chavez, who guides them as they ultimately produce a fine piece of traditional, carved furniture.
Stay tuned for more details and bidding instructions!
RSVP below and we will let you know when the auction goes live!
