The Doña Ana Arts Council (DAAC) announces seven new art and culture courses for the 2021 spring semester. The FEED YOUR MIND courses start the week of January 18, 2021 and include World Art, Mesoamerican Art, Great Mexican Artists, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, The Art of Japan, and Trost’s Architectural Legacy in Las Cruces and El Paso.  All courses are online via Zoom.  Registration is online at or by calling the DAAC office at (575) 523-6403.  

The cost is $5 per class or free of charge for DAAC members who have joined at the Heart for Art level ($101 annually) or higher.   All classes will be recorded and emailed to students after each class.  The recordings give students a chance to make up missed sessions or to start the course after the initial start date.  Two returning instructors from the Feed Your Mind program will teach in the spring of 2021:  Kathleen Key, art history professor at University of Texas El Paso (UTEP), and Nicholas Dahle, who, along with Ms. Key, also teaches at UTEP’s OLLI Continuing Education Program.


Mesoamerican Art with Nicholas Dahle is six weeks (6 classes) on Thursdays from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. starting 1/21/21 and ending 2/25/21.  Course description from Mr. Dahle:

Before the arrival of Europeans in the 15th century, the Americas were home to rich cultures that produced great works of art in clay, gold, stone, shell, and feathers. These works of art reveal fascinating facts about the lives and beliefs of people in ancient Mesoamerica. Join us as we explore and learn about the many cultures of Mesoamerica through their art.
