Pipestone provides the umbrella to collaborate as Artist Educators to provide a network of educational workshops to their communities.  


The structure artist curriculum 

  • The expectation for recognizing and honoring similarities and differences are tools of creativity and effective problem solving.

  • a description of the time, and expectations is shared 

  • reinforced skills include, speaking gistfully, listening, observation and remembering/note taking, offering feedback and building from other ideas.  

  • the artist leads audience feedback, recall of impressions

  • acceptance and non judgement is encouraged and if necessary persons are redirected to engage in their skills.

  • A storytelling activity is intended to express through movement, drawing, spoken word, etc, their experience of the workshop.  

  • The art belong to its creator either individually or collectively and will be documented through photography.


Artist Educators are available to schedule locally and across the state. To date we have screened and presented at cultural and educational sites, senior centers, galleries and museums across New Mexico including: UNM, Northern New Mexico College, Northern Rio Grande Heritage Foundation, The Village of Abiquiu, El Rito, Taos, Las Vegas, Albuquerque Hubble House and the Guild Theatre, Los Jardines Institute, South Broadway Cultural Center, Santa Fe Theatres, Belen Museum and Portales, among other venues.   

Artists in Residence:

Vaughn Harris, has many generations rooted in Albuquerque's Old Town where he was raised.  Raised by his single mother and her sisters, when Vaughn began drawing he soon found the connection of their strength, endurance and compassion with the Virgin de Guadalupe. Initially guided by traditional retablo artist Daniel Blea, Vaughn soon developed his own style taking the traditional into a modern expression. Vaughn is prolific with his art with over 600 original works.  He is currently preparing a coloring book of his works to be published. View his art at

Cynthia Gomez, filmmaker and oral historian, has taught in school classrooms and community settings on a multitude of topics. Her focus is utilizing the collection of stories in her documentary film, Land Water People Time, to explore and better understand New Mexico history, diverse cultures, natural environments, food economy and the relationship between people and places. Cynthia has designed a curriculum and syllabus to be adaptive to any audience.

Look for new incoming artist collaborators, including potters, dancers, photographers, writers, spoken word performers, and jewelers, to join our collaboration.
