Day of the Dead: DIY Calaveras

Tuesday, October 24 at 7:00 p.m.

The Day of the Dead (or Día de los Muertos) is an important holiday in Mexican culture. During its observance on November 1, family and friends gather to pray for their dead loved ones’ journey in the afterlife. There are parades, food, and ceremonial alters created to honor dead relatives. One traditional offering left on alters are intricately decorated Calaveras, or skulls. In this activity we will be painting small ceramic Calaveras in the traditional Mexican style. Registration is not required to attend, but space is limited. Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.
