Feliz día de los Muertos

Remembering Our Loved Ones

It’s Día de los Muertos and we remember friends and family members who are no longer with us.

Thank you to everyone who came to our Día de los Muertos Family Day celebration on October 23. It was a wonderful day of community and creativity. We’ve shared some photos from the day on our Facebook page.

If you missed the event there’s still time to get creative for Día de los Muertos! Check out this short video ( by RAC teaching artist Tatiana Ortiz. She’ll teach you how to make papel picado and a simple marigold watercolor. Or download this Ofrenda Activity ( by Vero d. Orozco.
