Join us on October 7th for an opportunity to explore the history and culture of an iconic celebration that takes place in multiple Spanish speaking countries in Latin America including the United States.

El Día de los Muertos is a historical cultural celebration that takes place in the fall to honor the lives of loved deceased family members.

Participants will have an opportunity to participate in a short lecture to learn about the history and purpose of this celebration. Participants will participate in various hands-on activity stations such as: making and decorating sugar skulls, creating papel picado, and making crepe paper marigolds.

This workshop will be facilitated by Javier Gonzalez; Sierra Grande High School Spanish Teacher, Maria Fleming; Sierra Grande K-12 Art Teacher, and high school Spanish/Art Club students.

Activity is free but space is limited.
