Masks of the Americas: Workshop for Kids with Monica Chavarria (Session 1))
September 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Learn about masks used in Latin American celebrations, ceremonies and rituals. Kids will see examples from the Americas and decorate their own with paint, beads, feathers, and paper. They’ll incorporate them with favorite Latin American elements like animals, flowers, and carnival characters.
Monica Chavarria leads this workshop, highlighting the importance of cultural preservation and celebrating diversity through art. From Medellin, Colombia (the city of “Eternal Spring”), Chavarria has been teaching art for 23 years and creates works expressing memories of her homeland.

Made possible by funds from the Essex County Division of Cultural Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
