MMAC depends on local artists to inspire us and our community members in expression through art. If you have experience teaching art that would fit within one of our programs, please contact our Program Committee. Artist instructors are financially compensated and materials purchased in part through grants provided by New Mexico Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
If you have an arts-related event, workshop, or lecture idea for the Manzano Mountain Art Council, please submit this form.
