Instructor: Diego Rios
Create and hand paint a Sacred Heart or Mask steeped in the rich cultural history of Mexico after getting an expert demonstration from artist Diego Marcial Rios. Breathtakingly colorful Sacred Hearts and Masks have long been part of the Mexican culture. Beautifully decorated paper mache masks are often used in celebration of Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. Dive into the rich history of the paper mache 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.
Please Note: This is not a paint by numbers or “paint night” type of an art class. This art class allows both new and experienced artists to explore their unique art vision in an ancient and almost forgotten art media.
This fun workshop is the 3rd in a series of four Dia de los Muertos cultural artistic workshops. Sign-up for all four!
Events supported by a grant from the Kiwanis Club.
