About the Workshop

Norman-Sims Elementary

The 10th amArte workshop was held Norman-Sims Elementary with master Artist Mary Jane Garza. The Fourth and Fifth-grade students were guided into understanding, reflecting on, and crafting various elements for the altar and ofrenda they created for their school. The workshop was held over two days, with 90-minute sessions for each grade. During this time, the youth decorated and dedicated sugar skulls to people they wanted to honor, such as family members who have passed. Papel Picado and marigolds were hand-made to fill the altar.

The altar and the entire renovated campus will formally inaugurate on October 28. The community is all invited to come and commemorate loved ones who we’ve lost, as the tradition intends.
