from Cleveland Museum of Art

Program image

El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is being offered October 1st-November 2nd, 2018.
This interactive videoconference will introduce students to Day of the Dead and explain how it is celebrated in Mexico.

Elementary students will create movable paper esqueletos (skeletons) during the conference.

Middle and high school students will make calaveras.
"Calavera" in Spanish means "skull." It also refers to humorous, imaginary, poetic obituaries printed in newspapers that are used to poke fun at people who are still living (such as politicians or other public figures). Students will create their poems ahead of time, and have the opportunity to illustrate them during the video conference.
