Happy Arte Hour is a free event for adults at the NHCC, and it’s a chance to get your creative groove on…  The next ones are on May 3 and June 7, 2012.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center Happy Arte Hour features Albuquerque artists teaching some of the basics in their art form, with a chance to socialize and get to know your creative neighbors over chips and salsa – there’s also a cash bar available on these Thursday evenings. 

The events are for adults, and it’s free to join in, although donations are welcome to help keep the program going and pay the artists.  Also let the organizers know you’re going so they can make sure to provide enough materials for you.

Upcoming session are:

Thursday May 3: Papel Picado Happe Arte Hour with Catalina Delgado Trunk from 5:30 – 7:30 pm, learning about the basics of papel picado, or cut paper, using patterns. I always love seeing Catalina Delgado Trunk’s art at various events around town – her work is so intricate and beautiful. I’m sure my own paper-cutting technique would look like a rabid mouse had been gnawing at it.  

Thursday June 7: Playful Clay Creations with Micaela Seidel. Go hands-on with clay from 5:30 – 7:30 pm.

Let them know you’re going by emailing Erica Garcia so they can plan the space and supplies needed. Happe Arte Hour is held at the NHCC’s Domenici Education Building.

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is located at 1701 4th Street SW, Albuquerque.
