I have been teaching some of the students at Say Si to create jewelry with Bronzclay (metal clay) for their 5th Annual MUERTITOS FEST this year. This is my third time going to Say Si to teach the students and I am very happy to do it. These kids are so talented and I love how Say Si provides them opportunities to develop social and artistic skills.
Say Si's 5th Annual MUERTITOS FEST will be held on Nov.3-5. This is a wonderful family event that you can not miss ! The festival will include local artists, exhibition of traditional folk art, altars created to honor the deceased, family workshops, food booths, live music and much more.
These three days include:
Muertitos Fest Fiesta is on Thursday, Nov. 3rd from 7 to 10 pm
(opening night fundraiser, tickets $25 per person)
Feast on Mexican delicacies and enjoy live music as you preview the students artisan work and altars. Play Loteria (Mexican Bingo) with local celebrity callers.
Muertitos Fest First Friday on Nov. 4th from 6 to 10 pm

The festivities continue with a Dia de los Muertos First Friday Celebration. Enjoy the exhibits, altars, live music and dance performances, festive food and artisan booths, and a Day of the Dead Procession.
Muertitos Fest Family Day on Saturday, Nov. 5th from 12:00 to 3:00 pm

These are some of the pieces my students made for this great event, we still need to finish them and add chains and beads. I am still firing more pieces and I will post them when they are finished.
