ALMA Summer Institute is working on a multi-year project at The Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge. We are looking for applicants from the Mountain View, South Valley Community, and Isleta Pueblo community. During the program, apprentices will help finalize a large-scale mosaic design on free-standing concrete sculptures, cut tiles from wet clay, glaze and fire tiles, install, and grout the large-scale mosaic mural. Apprentices will also learn valuable job skills, work with talented artists from around Albuquerque, and become part of the greater art community in Albuquerque.
