Breathtaking colorful Sugar Skulls have long been part of the Mexican culture.  Beautifully decorated Sugar Skulls are often used as decorations on graves and altars during Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead.  Dive into the rich history of the sugar skulls tradition alongside internationally acclaimed artist Diego Marcial Rios, who overviews its fascinating background before giving a demo on the craft.  Once you have got the basics down, roll up your sleeves to create and hand paint your own unique, expressive work.  Let your imagination go wild!

This fun workshop is the 2nd in a series of four Dia de los Muertos cultural artistic workshops.  Sign-up for all four!
