Teen Monster Design Challenge Workshop



In partnership with the Paseo Project, the Taos Public Library will host a workshop open to area teens for the purpose of facilitating submissions as part of the Paseo's 2017 Youth Program. The design challenge is based on the work of featured artist Motomichi Nakamura’s Tiny People and Giant Monster series which uses the monster as a mythological character to explore environmental issues. Submissions will be shown on the Paseo Project website. Challenge winners will have their art projected onto buildings around the plaza area alongside the featured artist’s work at the PASEO Party on the Plaza event on September 23, 2017.

David Mansfield, art teacher and librarian, and Patrick Western, teen librarian, will ...guide participants through the creation of Monsters. Participants will use the library's resources to research environmental, cultural, and other topics that will inform their designs. The final drawings will be scanned and digitized to prepare them for submission to the festival.

Participation is open to all Middle or High School students in Taos County. Please contact Patrick Western to let us know you are coming - PWestern@taosgov.com - 737-2596.
