ke patterning and cause and effect (i.e., “If I push very hard with a crayon the color is darker.”). They can also practice critical thinking skills by making a mental plan or picture of what they intend to create and following through on their plan.


Hinovations’ art workshops not only help develop these and more skills but also focus on cultural learning. Every summer the Gallery develops Art Lessons based on Art from different parts of the world. This year students will learn about the art of South America in particular, the Golden Age of Argentine Comics, Indigenous art of Colombia and Ecuador, the Indigenous art of the Inca, and the Folk art of the Guajira and Wayuu people of Venezuela. These workshops are accompanied by historical facts of the areas, complimented with music and cover drawing, painting, printing and more. Additional classes include the Celebration of Superheroes with Gallery Guest Artist, Lupe Hernandez teaching Basic Super Hero Drawing and Super Hero Emblem art workshops as well as Modern Graffiti and Air Brush Painting. Local artist, Gaby Rico will also be teaching classes the month of June focusing on Textural Painting Techniques for Youth and Adults. Resident artist, Celerino Castillo will focus on Chicano and Cultura Arte, teaching kids on a one-on-one basis.
