Día de los Muertos Workshop Series

Friends, here's a series of workshops that I absolutely do not want you to miss! 

The Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center has partnered with local museums in Fort Worth, TX, and is hosting several online Día de los Muertos Workshops. All of them will be conducted on their Facebook page via Facebook LIVE. 

NOTE: If you live in the DFW area, they will make free kits available for pickup prior to each workshop!

The first one is TOMORROW. If you have an opportunity tomorrow, Saturday, October 31st at 12 pm CT, join the virtual event that is hosted in partnership with the Amon Carter Museum, who will be showing you how to make TWO pieces of art:

  1. a José Guadalupe Posada-inspired print, and
  2. a Justin Favela-inspired piñata
The event is FREE and will be presented in both English and Spanish. Here is a list of the materials you'll need for the projects. 

Here's a peek at the instructors and the projects:

The second one is on Saturday, Nov 7th from 12pm to 1pm CT in partnership with the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. In this workshop, you'll learn all about Monarch Butterflies. They will talk about their life cycle, how to attract them to your gardens, as well as their interesting and mysterious migration. Participants will get to make a monarch glider as part of this class. Printed templets and pennies will be provided for this activity.

And the final one is on Saturday, Nov 14th from 12pm to 1pm CT. In this workshop, the Kimbell Art Museum will teach two 30-minute workshops that explore art, family ancestry, and our favorite delicious foods! They’ll begin with a storybook reading and discussion about what our names mean to us, followed by a mixed-media painting activity celebrating the story of our names!

The second session, inspired by ofrendas and family cooking, takes a closer look at tasty treats in Kimbell still life paintings with a related bookmaking activity to help you start your own collection of family recipes.
