Design your own Day of the Dead mask

Design your own Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Mask at the October Make Art Monday!

The Mexican tradition of sugar skulls is for families to decorate their loved ones’ Day of the Dead altars with both large and small handmade sugar skulls. Children who have died, represented by small sugar skulls, are celebrated on November 1. The larger sugar skulls represent the adults, whose celebration takes place on November 2. It is believed that the departed return home to enjoy the offering on the altar.

We’ll be decorating Day of the Dead Sugar Skull masks with traditional designs at the next Make Art Monday, October 21, 7 p.m. at the Trego Arts Center at St. Luke’s, 125 N. Main St., North Wales. $5
