Way back in October we celebrated Dia de Los Muertos by creating collage skeletons and drawing decorated calaveras. Students learned about the holiday and traditions that go along with the celebrations and about the artist Jose Guadalupe Posada. Students were then given bright colored papers and other materials to create their compositions.
As you can see, they did an outstanding job.
