Art and Design: Papel Picado
Thursday September 24 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Celebrate the life element of wind by making your own papel picado banner. Literally translated, papel picado means “perforated” or “pecked” paper. Papel picado is a decorative Mexican folk art craft made by cutting elaborate designs into sheets of tissue paper. In Mexico, papel picados are often incorporated into the altars (ofrendas) during the Day of the Dead and are hung throughout the streets during holidays. When the wind blows it is believed the loved ones who have passed have arrived home.
Remember to stop in to the library prior, to the program, to pick up your art supplies at the Tech Desk, so that you can follow along with Miss Chris during the live Zoom program. The Tech Desk is to the right of the main lobby, at the end of the long study tables.
Once you register you will receive a confirmation email with a link to the Zoom meeting, a phone number to call into the Zoom meeting, and a password to the meeting. Join the Zoom meeting five minutes prior to the program, especially if you haven’t used Zoom before.
This free program is for ages 9-18. Registration is required to attend. Individually bagged art supplies are available at the Tech Desk, once registration is complete.
