CAJITAS : Mini Day of the Dead Boxes

Dia de los Muertos Workshop led by artist, Raul Aguilar

Saturday, October 24, 2009 | 2:00 pm

Create a memento, a shrine, a love token for the dearly departed, or just a funny vignette in a Day of the Dead theme! Using a small wooden box and a variety of collage materials you'll create a fantastic mini treasure to take home. Included are unpainted plaster skulls, hearts and other ornamental embellishments ready for you to paint. You'll also learn how to make lacy miniature "papel picado" and mini paper flowers. No previous art experience is necessary!

Fee: $30 per person, includes a 5x7 wooden box, and collage materials, but feel free to bring your own personal ephemera to embellish your box.

Please call Galeria to reserve your spot! Class is limited to 12 participants. Children with an adult assistant are welcome to participate. The class will be conducted bilingually, in English and Spanish."
