Pop-Up Play with PANCA
This year’s free community workshops feature a pop-up play experience with artist-in-residence and muralist, PANCA. Bring PANCA’s unique artwork to life through the act of playing and interacting with art. These workshops will inform PANCA’s new installation at the Museum to open in September.
2020 Workshop Dates + Locations (Postponed)
Due to the Museum’s temporary closure, the following Mass Creativity workshop dates are postponed until further notice.
Meet the Artist Behind the Workshops
PANCA (aka Paola Villaseñor) lives and works in Tijuana. She is an international artist known for her playful street art, which has appeared everywhere from walls in Mexico City to the galleries of the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD). As a child, PANCA visited The New Children’s Museum and recalls painting the Painted Object, which was one of her first experiences with painting something on a large scale. This left a big impression on her and has inspired her artwork today. Her work SMILE, currently adorns the Museum’s entry bridge, welcoming visitors with bright colors and playful smiles.
