The El Paso Museum of History presents a very special program for Dia de los Muertos. Local renowned artist Maria Natividad will conduct a family workshop on how to make a Dia de los Muertos Memory Box. All ages are welcome. The celebration of the Day of the Dead is one of love, honor and memory. In this workshop you will have the opportunity to make a memory box for a deceased loved one. All materials will be provided, including the boxes which are about the size of a shoe box. All you have to do is bring a picture of the person you wish to honor and anything else that is descriptive of your person. As a native of El Paso, Maria grew up with the rich culture and heritage of her Hispanic background. As a visual artist, she puts emotion into her artwork that draws the viewer in. A teacher for 20 years with the Ysleta School District, her association with children has always been a close and sensitive one. Maria especially loves to have people create special alters for Dia de los Muertos.
