Dia de los Muertos
Posted by Richard Minks at 11/3/2015
Students helped create an ofrenda or altar for the holiday displayed at the Edgewood Fine Arts Academy Art Gallery. The altar was presented in honor of Elsa Padilla, an old time college friend who passed away this summer.
The 2nd graders created the skulls decorating the altar background. The third graders created the skeletons dancing in front of the altar. The fourth graders created the skull forms resting on the altar and the shimmering candles. Some fifth graders helped create the papel picado filling in the background.
Hope you get a chance to go see all of the beautiful altars displayed there soon...
