Kids Take & Make: Amate Paintings @ Aloha Community Library

In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month,  September’s take and make will explore the traditional Mexican folk art known as amate bark paintings.  Amate (pronounced “ah-MAH-tay”) bark painting is an ancient tradition that uses paper made from tree bark to create bright, vibrant paintings featuring scenes of daily life, history, or nature. Kits will include everything you need to recreate the colorful look of an amate painting while learning about their place in Mexico’s history.  Available starting Monday, September 12 at the library while supplies last.
