Plaster Mask Workshop:
This Workshop utilizes cut plaster strips to adhere to the face and form a mask. The mask is used to cloak one’s true identity during Dia De Los Muertos. This workshop is hands on and communal. The maestra will teach participants to create their masks and then the participants will assist others in creating their masks.
