This First Friday we celebrate one of the leading painters of the 20th century, Pablita Velarde/Tse Tsan “Golden Dawn” (Santa Clara Pueblo) (1918-2006) who was a pioneer as a woman artist in an era and a community where painting was a male art form.
Learn about Pablita’s daughter (Helen Hardin) and granddaughter (Margarete Bagshaw) who are also famous women artists and engage in guided art activities inspired by their bodies of work.
