Day of the Dead: Mexican folk crafts to honor our loved ones. Learn all about the sacred Mexican celebration, Dia De Muertos – it is NOT “just like Halloween”! We will see beautiful images of families honoring their departed friends and family before we use similar materials to create our own ofrendas (altars), complete with papel picado (paper cut banners), flores (paper flowers), and calaveras (sugar skulls – ours will be pre-made dough-skulls, ready to decorate). Our artist-friend Hector Pietra-Santa will be with us to share a video, his family traditions, and answer questions.
