In this free family workshop, guests of the Mexic Arte Museum are invited to create a soft sculpture pencil topper. This workshop is inspired by April Garcia's soft sculpture style and process. Using poms, pencils, and glue, visitors will be guided by April Garcia, one of our featured artists for our upcoming exhibition: Expresiones en Esculturas/Expressions in Scupltures, to create a colorful little soft sculpture on top of a pencil.

About April Garcia:

April Garcia (b. 1978 in San Benito, TX) is an Austin based artist who loves to create soft sculpture art. Using fabric, fiber-fill, needle, thread, she sews her fabric pieces by hand or with a machine. By sewing colorful fabric shapes, attaching one to another and again, until the pieces are unified and bulging with shape, but balanced with colors and patterns. April enjoys allowing her sculptures to grow organically when she is creating and she allows her soft sculptures to morph into what they want to be.
