Make your own mini Sugar Skulls!

Saturday, October 26

$15 members | $18 general public

Fabric and paper artist Jennifer Eschedor is inspired by the artistic traditions surrounding El Día de los Muertos, creating pieces that reflect and celebrate this borderland custom. Join her for a one-hour mini-workshop and start your own tradition by crafting a unique and personal “sugar skull” for your own ofrenda (altar). Starting with a blank white papier mache skull, participants will work with paint, paint markers and transparent glitter to design and decorate their personalized skull. Eschedor provides lots of design examples for inspiration. All materials provided.


Artist-inspired Day of the Dead altars by local artists and schools including

Carolee Asia, Royce Davenport, Jennifer Eschedor, Diane Ganski, Annie Gordon, Jody Ipsen, Stu Jenks, Adam and Patricia Silva, Aimee Smythe, Canyon del Oro High School, Sunshine School and Tucson Magnet High School
