Family Art Day: Mexico’s Day of the Dead
Pick up dates for Grab-n-Go Day of the Dead Art Kits:
Tuesday, October 27th–Saturday, October 31st
Due to COVID–19, the Academy Art Museum will not be able to offer in-person Family Art Days in the fall, but we will initiate themed “Grab-n-Go” art kits that parents can pick up at the Museum and work on at home with their children.
Learn about Mexico’s Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos). The Day of the Dead holiday involves family and friends gathering to pay tribute to friends and family members who have died and helping support their spiritual journey. Many create festive altars that include pictures, skulls and favorite belongings of lost ones who have passed on. The Día de Muertos is not viewed as a day of sadness but rather of celebration because loved ones are there in spirit to share in the revelry. Contact the Museum’s Director of Children’s Education and Community Programs, Constance Del Nero, at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to sign up. There is no cost to participate, but please let us know if you want a kit as it will help us plan.
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
