I love getting ready for Halloween and celebrating Mexico's traditional holiday, Los Dias de Muertos by painting a few masks and dressing up my studio skeleton in honor of both holidays.
A few years ago my International Baccalaureate (IB) students and I researched Mexico's holiday also known as "The Day of the Dead," by creating cigar box shrines. If your not familar with this holiday, it is a time for families to remember and honor departed ancestors, friends and family.
If you would like to see the cigar box shrine that I created in memory of my good friend and artist Marlene Scott, click on her name.
Hope you enjoy the pictures, and a walk down memory lane with me.
