Pottery group visits 3-D art students
Posted on 2019/11/08
potteryThe extraordinary pottery group Mata Ortiz, featuring Juan Mora and Lupe Soto, generously offered their time and expertise to come and teach Apollo ceramic students the process they use to make these one-of-a-kind works of art. Their process is steeped in generations of tradition mixed with individual contemporary expression of each artist. Truly an amazing experience for the students.

Juan and Lupe never charge for their time at high schools. They simply want to share their knowledge and culture with young potential artists. In exchange for their generosity, Apollo provided a space for them to set up a wide variety of work from the Mata Ortiz village and sell that work to staff, community members, and even students. They priced their work so that it is within reach of every earning level.
