November Art News

Hello My Artsy Friends! 
   Isn't it beautiful to see the trees change color and feel that bite in the air that beckons in a new season?  I find it is a great time to create in my studio, as it's warm and cozy inside and I love to watch the deer walk through the red and yellow leaves that have fallen outside the art studio window.
   There's so much to do creatively here.  I have on the calendar a few new courses, one of the best art/craft shows in the Northwest and some opportunities to make some gifts for the holidays. So if you are needing some "me" time or would like to comes over to try something new, please give me a call!

What's New?

Day of the Dead Workshop
The annual Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos also known as The "Day of the Dead" is on November 1st and 2nd. It is a festive holiday for families to pay tribute to those who have passed on. During this time, people decorate their home alters and journey to their family cemeteries to decorate and remember in a festive, fun, colorful way with skulls, food, photographs and flowers. It is believed that the departed return home to enjoy the beauty of these offerings. 

We will learn about the vibrant cultural tradition of this practice in the workshop. The colorfully painted skull can be a commemoration of a person you are honoring. Work with paint (with paint pens), glitter and gems to bling up a paper mache skull.
