Day of the Dead Workshop: Papel Picado & Paper Flowers, Arts Council of Princeton

Saturday October 16, 2021
1:00 PM

102 Witherspoon St., Princeton
(609) 924-8777 | artscouncilofprinceton.org    

Celebrate el Día de los Muertos with the Arts Council of Princeton! Join us for free outdoor workshops to learn about this culturally rich holiday and the traditional folk arts associated with Day of the Dead.

The art of cutting paper banners is a true talent in Mexico, traditionally done with chisels. We will make the festive tissue paper banners that flutter over every plaza, shop, and doorway during Day of the Dead.

Ages 7+. Workshops will be led by Veronica Olivares Weber and ACP Artistic Director Maria Evans.

Flowers are also a large part of this holiday, gathered in bunches and placed at cemeteries. Learn how to make a bouquet of the brightly colored cempoalxochitl flowers the Arts Council has used to decorate our altar arch for our annual festival.

Not only will you learn a new folk art craft, but you'll be invited to display your work in our Day of the Dead Exhibition in our Sands Lobby Gallery from November 6-20!
