To celebrate and honor the memories of loved ones who have passed away, join us for a virtual Day of the Dead / El Día de los Muertos art making activity led by teaching artist Eduardo Valadez Arenas. In the Ancestor Portrait Workshop, families will learn about Mexico’s most historically and culturally important event while creating a decorative portrait collage of someone (or something) whose memory you’d like to honor and celebrate. Families may also create papel picado (chiseled paper) flags inspired by El Día de los Muertos and Halloween themes.

Registration is required; sliding scale fee available.
