Event Dates and Times
Celebrate el Día de los Muertos with the Arts Council of Princeton! Join us for free outdoor workshops to learn about this culturally rich holiday and the traditional folk arts associated with Day of the Dead.

Receive a tour of our vibrant El Día de los Muertos gallery installation and learn the customs of this colorful, art-filled holiday! Then join our instructor for creating your own nichos, papel picados, Calaveras, or paper flowers. These projects will certainly become treasured family heirlooms for many Day of the Dead celebrations to come.

This workshop is designed for a child and a parent or caregiver to complete projects together.

Ages 4+. Workshops will be led by Veronica Olivares Weber and ACP Artistic Director Maria Evans.

Not only will you learn a new folk art craft, but you’ll be invited to display your work in our Day of the Dead Exhibition in our Sands Lobby Gallery from November 6-20!

Space is limited and REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED:

El Día de los Muertos is observed in Mexico and throughout the world this time of year, where family and friends gather to remember and honor those who have died.
