TAE is getting inspired for the upcoming holiday… Día de los Muertos or The Day of the Dead!

oma-day-of-dead-title

For those of you who don’t know, this international cultural tradition that began in Mexico, celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, dancing and traditions passed down from generation to generation. Every year, the OMA (Oceanside Museum of Art) brings this holiday to life with an exciting event called Art After Dark. There will be music, great food, drinks, a fashion show, and live art demos and classes from some of the leading artists in San Diego. Excited to say, this is where I come in! I have been invited by my friend and participating artists, Graham Smith, to be an art assistant in teaching enthusiats how to make Día de los Muertos Masks. I will also be out there documenting the event, so for all those who can’t make out on November 1, 2013, be sure to check TAE for all the fun and exciting details and photos. Remember, all proceeds go to the museum, so your attendance will help support the arts!

Here are some examples of Graham Smith’s 100% Recycled Cardboard Masks:
