OutsmART and Mama Create-Ups Workshops

OutsmART and Mama Create-Ups Workshops

We are thrilled to invite the full regional community to our first Mama Create-Up! Author Michelle Hackney and Illustrator Mia Ortiz-Gandara will present their children’s book Mama’s Leche and their mission to normalize breastfeeding by approaching the story of breastfeeding from the perspective of the child. Various members from the New Mexico Breastfeeding Task Force (NMBTF) will also share information on breastfeeding support groups and lactation professionals to our mothers in the Las Cruces community. 

*Lectures are free and open to all with or without children, this also includes babies.

Our first OutsmART children's workshop will utilize Labor artist Jessica Jackson Hutchins’s artworks SAP and Lascaux Reprise as inspiration. After visiting Hutchins’s works in the Contemporary Gallery, the children will create a clay sculpture using recycled materials as a framing device to represent their mothers. This workshop will explore various images and ideas of a mother as the focal point for their child, as the source of food, transportation, comfort, and understanding. The clay sculptures the students create will showcase how they view their mothers.

Mama Create-Ups Workshop #2: FMLA

We are pleased to invite the full on-and-off campus community to the second presentation in our Mama Create-Ups series focused on The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) with Dr. Dulcinea Lara, an associate professor in the Criminal Justice department and Director of the Borderlands & Ethnic Studies program at New Mexico State University. Part lecture, part discussion, and collaborative project, Dr. Lara will give a basic overview of FMLA through the lenses of legality and personhood.

Our OutsmART children’s Workshop #2 will draw inspiration from the artwork MotherLove by Labor featured artists Las Hermanas Iglesias.
