Our Huichol friend Cilau Valadez, shown here with Stevie Mack and me is going to visit our SchoolArts/CRIZMAC Folk Art Extravaganza group in July in Santa Fe and we can't wait to see him again. He'll demonstrate his elaborated detailed yarn paintings and share his culture with us. He is just one of the artists we'll work with in our seminar and meet at the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market. It's a trip around the world in a weekend! It is not too late to register. You don't have to be an art teacher to join us (you just need an interest in folk art), but teachers can receive continuing education credits for their participation.
Here are some more images of folk artists at past Folk Art Markets:
