Faroles/Lantern Workshop for Kids

Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month with this lantern workshop for kids! Led by the talented Rosalba Solis, kids will learn the story behind “faroles” and will get to make a lantern of their own through a step-by-step process. Our intended audience for this program is kids ages 5-13 and their caregivers. Spots for this program will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Rosalba Solis is the founder of the Boston-based, La Piñata – a nearly thirty-year old, Latin American cultural & performing arts, community organization. Rosalba is a professional teacher, dancer, musician, ’19 Mayor Walsh Youth Advocate Award Winner, ’13 Jubilation Foundation Fellow, ’05 Boston Fund for Teachers Fellows, ’01 Michael Griffin Humanities Award Honorable Mention recipient for “excellence and commitment in service to Boston youth”, and ’93 Massachusetts Arts in Education Award recipient for “being an outstanding educator in the arts”. What is truly amazing, however, is watching Rosalba engage with students and audiences, Rosalba sparks a love for arts through her cultural and performing arts instructions; and with the arts as a tool for transcending obstacles, Rosalba ignites a joy for learning and life in all students and audiences that she touches.

This event is generously sponsored by the Brookline Library Foundation.
