(Note: This is not a “paint by numbers” type of art class. Students are free to be creative and explore new art media.) Breathtakingly colorful masks and papier-mâché art sculpture has long been part of the Mexican culture and are often used in celebration of Dia de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead. Dive into the rich history of this papier-mâché tradition alongside internationally acclaimed artist Diego Marcial Rios, who overviews its fascinating background before giving a demo on the craft. Once you’ve got the basics down, roll up your sleeves to create and hand-paint your own one-of-a-kind masterpiece. Brief Historical/Cultural lecture Hear a brief, historical summary of the papier-mâché media during the “Spanish Conquests”. There will also be a brief account of the cultural significance of the Day of the Dead in both European and Aztec cultures. Handcraft a Papier-Mâché Mask Discover how to make a piece of art influenced by Mexican culture in time for Day of the Dead celebrations. You will learn about the almost-forgotten ingredients necessary to create papier-mâché paste along with the methods of creating larger 3d structures with papier-mâché. Hand Paint a decorative mask suitable for display or even wearing at a Day of the Dead event. Materials will be available for attendees to hand paint a colorful and decorative mask. Paints, brushes, mask forms, stencils and all other art materials will be available at the workshop. Work Under the Guidance of a Renowned Artist See live examples of the papier-mâché process and get inspired by an artist who has been exhibiting for more than 30 years. (Gratis/Free Extra: Pan Dulce will be provided as a snack for art attendees)
