I am an artist of proud Mexican American Heritage. I have been professionally showing my artwork both internationally and nationally for about 30 years time. My artwork has been included in over 500 exhibitions from Japan to Bulgaria. My artwork is in many permanent museum and public art collections in the USA and abroad. I have illustrated many books and periodicals. I have been interviewed many times by radio and TV. There have been several brief documentaries that have focused on my life and art work. To see the latest documentary go to Vimeo or U-tube and place my name in search engine " Diego Marcial Rios". Do not let the world get you down! Stand up everyday and do some artwork! VIVA ARTE!!!

What we'll do

Create and hand paint a Sacred Heart or Mask steeped in the rich cultural history of Mexico after getting an expert demonstration from artist Diego Marcial Rios. Please Note: This is not a paint by numbers or "paint night" type of an art class. This art class allows both new and experienced artist to explore their unique art vision in an ancient and almost forgotten art media. Breathtakingly colorful Sacred Hearts and Masks have long been part of the Mexican culture. Beautifully decorated paper mache masks are often used in celebration of Dia de los Muertos or Day of Dead. Dive into the rich history of the paper mache tradition alongside internationally acclaimed artist Diego Marcial Rios, who overviews its fascinating background before giving a demo on the craft. Once you have got the basics down, roll up your sleeves to create and hand paint your own unique, expressive work.
