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. This is your chance to dive into the rich history of the paper mache tradition, create and hand paint a Sacred Heart or Mask steeped in the rich cultural history of Mexico. Internationally acclaimed artist Diego Marcial Rios will deliver a brief historical summary of the paper mache media during the “ Spanish Conquests” and an overview of the cultural significance of the Sacred Heart icon in European culture as well as other popular imagery originating from the Aztecs.
