Join Visiting Artist Katy Chandler for some fun with mud! Following ancient traditions, but using modern methods, visitors will use clay soil, sand, and straw to make beautiful designs like those seen on the sides of buildings around the world. You’ll use materials gathered from right here in Reno and natural pigments harvested sustainably from rock and soil to create a one-of-a-kind work of art.
