Celebrate Springtime showers by creating your very own rain stick!

During April and May, the clouds darken and rain falls from the sky. This water makes our summer so beautiful—the hills turn green and the flowers bloom! Celebrate the changing of the seasons with us by creating your own rain stick. Join experienced artist Christina Kortz in using recycled materials, decorative tapes, grains of rice, beans, and tissue paper to make your own sound machine. 

Christina Kortz has been with the O’Keeffe Museum since the year 2000. She began as an Education Coordinator and Family Programs Manager, and now works as a Museum Educator and Gallery Guide. Christina is an experienced arts educator, illustrator, fashion stylist, and dancer.
