Dia de los Muertos, Day of the Dead Sugar Skull Drawings

What a colorful holiday! Day of the Dead is celebrated in the art studio because of all colorful creative design that comes from all the decorations.  Dominated with skeletons and colors of vibrant red and marigold, Day of the Dead celebrates the memory of loved ones that have passed in Mexico and Latin American countries.  I came across this lesson on Deep Space Sparkle by Patty Palmer, and students were excited to try it. It is a great lesson on symmetry and I love the creative, personal designs they came up with. I can't wait to see the end product.
