SVRG crafts with the Palo Alto Art Center

This past Sunday, April 11, Retox Fox, Steffin’ Razor, and Belle Wringer ventured to Palo Alto to help the Palo Alto Art Center host a Family Day. The free event allows parents to bring their children in for a day of crafting and learning about art. The event was focused on the gallery’s current exhibit on Mexican folk art, “Treasures of the Mexican Museum: A Spirited Legacy.” (It closes April 18, so get there this week!)

Kids were invited to watch musical and dance performances and participate in several activities, including making clay animals, paper flowers, bark paintings, and maracas; learning how to make and cook tortillas; and drawing themselves into a community mural based on an untitled painting by Oaxacan artist Rodolfo Morales (which, as a result, features a SVRG derby girl and her roller skating unicorn friend.) We had a lot of fun helping the kids find their creative spirit (not to mention our own), and we hope to do it again in the future!
