About the class

Kick off the month of October with the first workshop of the Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) holiday series. In this easy and fun, family-friendly workshop, we will celebrate the traditions of Day of the Dead by making Papel PIcado (Cut out paper flags). Instructor Ana Rios will walk students through the history of Papel Picado and how they are traditionally displayed on altars and can signify the union between life and death. Participants will have a variety of materials and colors to choose from! As a bonus project, Ana will teach students how to make paper flowers as well!

Don’t forget to check out the other classes in this series.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.

The Sonoma Community Center (the Center) strives to create an inclusive, safe community where everyone is treated with dignity and respect. The Center is committed to creating such an environment because it brings out the fullest potential in each of us, which, in turn, contributes directly to creating a community of belonging. In order to ensure a positive, safe, and welcoming experience for everyone, all program participants are asked to abide by the following policies, community agreements, and restorative safety protocol.
