Calaveras painting is a traditional Mexican art form that puts intention into honoring and welcoming the souls of the dead. Join Ase Arts for a workshop that explores this artisan style of painting while you also learn about the preservation of history and ancient traditions.

In this workshop, you'll be given a mask size calaveras (skull hand molded from therm-a-plastic), to paint. All paints and painting supplies will be provided, and printed design examples will be handed out to create your individualized painting mask.

This calaveras painting class is a chance to express your creativity, so feel free to bring any embellishments you would like to add to your mask.
