How to become La Catrina, the Mexican icon from the Day of the Dead
  • 30-10-2022

A Catrina is the icon of the Day of the Dead. For this reason it is very popular that it has become a very popular costume internationally. 

During this workshop we will show how the Catrina makeup is done and how it has become a  representation of Dia de muertos.  La Catrina (calavera garbancera) was originally created by Jose Guadalupe Posada and later named and painted dressed up by Diego Rivera in one of his murals. It became an iconic figure in Mexican culture representing death and the way Mexicans face it.

Bring your on material and tools for this workshop.

Participants will be encouraged to practice during the workshop.  At the end they will be able to share the final work and get tips on how to improve.
