Hand paint and decorate a Mexican sugar skull after getting several demonstration from artist Diego Marcial Rios.
Colorful Sugar Skulls have long been part of Mexican culture. Beautifully decorated Sugar Skulls are often used as decorations at gravesites and altars during Dia de los Muertos. Yet, the true history and origin of sugar skull art is rarely discussed or known.
Dive into the rich history of the sugar skulls tradition alongside internationally acclaimed artist Diego Marcial Rios, who will provide an overview of its fascinating background before giving a demo on the craft. Once you have the basics down, roll up your sleeves to create and hand paint your own unique, expressive work.
