Amate Painting Workshop

Jackson County 4-H and the Carbondale Public Library are celebrating Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month through a free workshop on September 24 from 10 a.m. - noon. Come design and paint your own amate painting during this event for youth ages 8-18. We will celebrate by making a visual art project, having a Latin snack, listening to a story by a Latinx author, and learning some cultural facts. 

The workshop is limited to 20 participants. Reserve your spot today by visiting go.illinois.edu/AmatePainting or contact Becky Needham at bneedham@illinois.edu.

University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in programs and employment. If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in programming, contact Becky Needham at bneedham@illinois.edu. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time for meeting your needs.
