Make your own Talavera tile pattern, inspired by Aliza Nisenbaum's paintings.
The Anderson Collection offers family activities every Second Sunday of the month in collaboration with the Cantor Arts Center!
During shelter-in-place, we offer a Zoom session with hands-on art activities at 11:00AM PDT.
The October edition of Second Sunday At Home features paintings by Aliza Nisenbaum in the forthcoming Cantor Arts Center exhibition, When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Migration through Contemporary Art.
These portrait paintings feature families in a setting with Mexican talavera tiles and are the inspiration for the art-making activity: creating your own talavera tile (family) pattern.
You can download the activity guide in advance of this session. For more information, visit the Cantor Arts Center Family Programs page.
