Day of the Dead Traditional Mexican Mask Making Class

Diego Marcial Rios

What You'll Get

Breathtakingly colorful masks long been part of the Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. Start your 2-hour workshop by listening to a 10-minute talk about the history behind this art form.

Paper Mache was introduced to Mexico during Colonial Period as a way to make ornaments for churches. The Aztecas viewed the human skull as a symbol of power and re-birth, while European cultures viewed the human skull as a symbol of death. Paper mache calaveras remain popular art forms in Mexico and the United States.

After an internationally renowned artist demonstrates the craft, you will have the opportunity to roll up your sleeves to hand-paint your own paper mache masterpiece.
