Walker’s Point Center for the Arts

The unique differences and exciting similarities within culture are areas which should always be appreciated. Learning more about others helps all of us to  better understand our own selves! On Wednesday, November 6th, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh grade Art and Spanish students attended the Dia de los Muertos celebration at the Walker’s Point Center for the Arts. This common Mexican holiday uses death to celebrate the gift of life! Students enjoyed a stimulating movie while reviewing the background of the theme. Within the main gallery, students were able to view the interesting ofrendas (offerings) created by local artists. Finally, the students had the opportunity to make their own marigolds in honor of the day. Overall, students had a very enjoyable and quite memorable experience!
