Drop-In Workshops for Families 

Drop-In Workshops for Families 

Join us for a printmaking workshop inspired by Día de Muertos/Day of the Dead and artist José Guadalupe Posada. 

Posada Art Foundation

The Education team invites families to join museum educators every month to be inspired by the museum’s exhibitions and screenings to create, learn, and have fun!

Our November Drop-In Workshops will continue the celebration of Día de Muertos. Learn about the holiday celebrated in the film Coco (2017). Día de Muertos, or Day of the Dead, encourages families to come together and remember loved ones who have died. The holiday is from Mexico but is celebrated in many parts of Latin America as well as in parts of the US.

Calaveras (skulls) are a symbol that is used throughout the holiday. They are a reminder to embrace the cycle of life, which includes death. Día de Muertos is a joyful time that helps people remember the deceased and celebrate their memory.

We will be making prints inspired by the work of José Guadalupe Posada who created the most famous calavera (skull) called “La Calavera Catrina.” Rooted deep within Mexican culture, Catrina is considered to be the most recognizable symbol of Día de Muertos.  

Join us anytime from 12:30pm to 2:30pm in the Shirley Temple Education Studio on the museum’s Lower Level.

Workshop Dates:
Saturdays: November 12 and 19
