Doesn't this mask look like fun to make? If you would like to make one go talk to Mrs. Miller.

The students in Mrs. Millers art classes are making Calaveras mask. They are making these masks to represent the Day of the Dead. Day of the Dead takes place on November 1st and 2nd. On the first of November they honor dead infants and children. On the second of November they honor adults that have died. The Mexican work Calaveras is another word for skull.

In Day of the Dead they set up an altar to honor the dead. On November 2nd they go to the cemeteries for grave site reunions.
