1-Day Workshop | Clay Sculpting: Dia de los Muertos

 *Price includes a $60 Studio Fee for all materials provided.


Class Description:

In this class, students will use red rock clay from Colorado and reconnect with the earth. Focus will be on the Mexican holiday of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), with time for exploring one’s own ancestral relationship to cultural holidays. Bring your imagination and voice to the medium of clay while learning sculptural techniques.


What to Expect:

We will start with looking at objects in the museum’s collections on display, researching, and sketching. Students will plan a vision for their Dia de los Muertos sculpture and build a paper armature. Remaining time will be spent on working with clay, sculpting, and finally painting.


Class Cancellation Policy:

If a class or workshop needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather or teacher illness, a “make-up” day will be scheduled on a FRIDAY or SATURDAY as the educator’s schedule allows.



All materials will be provided for this workshop and are included in the Studio Fee of $60.
