Norwood Library Dia de los Muertos Workshop

I hosted Norwood Library’s Dia de los Muertos painting workshop for kids. They painted paper mache “sugar skulls” at the library and later I exhibited them at the El Monte Dia de los Muertos celebration event which took place at the Valley Mall on Saturday, October 29. The kids got to take their works of art home after the exhibit.

Sugar Skull Painting workshop at Norwood Library.
The sugar skull has become one of the most recognizable cultural and artistic elements of the Day of the Dead festivals.
The colorful sugar skull is a joyful, celebratory figure in Day of the Dead celebrations.
Some of the children’s finished works.
We did three workshops with kids of different age groups, these are some of their finished work on display the day of the event.
They were all painted different and unique.
These were some of my volunteers at the event, including Miss El Monte! The display was awesome and the kids were happy to see their work in the exhibit.
