Los Maestros Young Artists

Los Maestros

Los Maestros is an ongoing program of the Chimayo Cultural Preservation Association. It is designed to teach our children the hands-on skills of New Mexican folk art, an artistic heritage that has been passed down for many generations. The art classes are held once a month at the Chimayo Museum. Subjects taught include tinwork, straw applique, traditional wood carving, weaving, micaceous pottery, colcha embroidery and traditional painting on wood and hide. The students range in age between nine and seventeen. They pledge to stay in school, resist drugs and to be respectful and well-mannered during all activities. More information here.
Los Maestros recently displayed their amazing art in front of Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe.
We at Hotel Chimayo de Santa Fe believe the preservation of our unique New Mexican cultural heritage is important now and for future generations. We hope to share our inspiring traditions to enchant new visitors and old friends. Thank you for helping us accomplish this.
