We chose ALMA as our name because, besides being an acronym, it means soul in Spanish. We genuinely pour our heart and soul into our designs and our relationships with all the artists we work with. We are a creative community that supports and empowers artists of all ages and creates world-class artwork through an apprenticeship model that develops leaders in a diverse and inclusive way.
ALMA Summer Institute in Albuquerque, NM creates large scale handmade ceramic tile mosaics using the apprenticeship model. We believe the murals we create have an extra layer of beauty because of the value of the relationships and skills learned through this process. Throughout the years, we have recruited people from diverse backgrounds who have benefited and contributed to the amazing work done.
ABQ & BEYOND
One of ALMA’s visions is to spread our apprenticeship model and artwork across Albuquerque and beyond!
