GETTING A HEAD OF THE DAY OF THE DEAD …

Day of the Dead heads!

Even though the traditional Mexican Day of the Dead holiday is celebrated in November, there’s no reason not to get ready for it in June!  I’ll be working with participants to make Day of the Dead mementos using some of the embellishment materials I often use in my work.  The workshop is scheduled for next Saturday, June 20th.

We’ll look at pictures I took in Oaxaca when I was there for the festivities and talk a little about the holiday itself.  Then it’ll be on to the art!  My friend, Betsy Cannon, and I taught this class last year at a spa in Mexico, and their blogger wrote: “It reminded me of being a kid, yet there we were, a room full of adults of all ages having a blast doing arts and crafts.”

There’s still room left, so plan to come and join the fun; no talent or experience required!

University of Wyoming Art Museum, Saturday, June 20th, from 3 to 5 pm.  To register, call Rachel Clifton at 307-766-6621 or email her at rmiller@uwyo.edu.  (Or, talk to her in person if you’re coming to the Biennial Exhibition reception Thursday night. Art Museum, 6-8 pm.)

And there’s some room left in the two other workshops that will be offered in this series (contact Rachel about them if you want to know more):
