Sugar Skulls
10am, 11:30am, 1pm | Upstairs OMH Gallery
Mexico possesses a rich and complex relationship with death that extends far beyond the Day of the Dead holiday and its iconic sugar skulls. In this workshop you will receive an introduction to the customs of Día de los Muertos and the symbolism of the sugar skull. Participants will be taken through the sugar skull making process step by step, and then create their very own skull art. All materials provided.

Skeleton + Katrina Masks
10am, 11:30am, 1pm | Breckenridge Theater Patio
Inspired by sugar skull face painting, you will learn how to decorate your own unique Day of the Dead mask. But unlike face paint, you won’t have to wash your mask off at the end of the celebration. Mask making is an ancient form of celebration and reverence in Mexico. Choose from either a Skeleton Face or the iconic Katrina made famous by Jose Posada in 1913. This workshop is part of a two-day celebration of Día de los Muertos that features a variety of classes and family activities with bilingual instructors from MSU Denver.

Loteria
10am, 11:30am, 1pm | Quandary Art Cabin
Loteria is a game of chance, similar to bingo, but using images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers on ping pong balls. Every image has a name and an assigned number, but the number is usually ignored. Each player has at least one tabla, a board with a randomly created 4 x 4 grid of pictures with their corresponding name and number. Create your own Dia de Los Muertos Loteria card in this fun filled workshop.

Grupo Huitzilopochtli Performance
11:30am + 2pm | Blue River Plaza
Día de los Muertos demonstrates a strong sense of love and respect for one’s ancestors, celebrates the continuance of life, family relationships, and community solidarity, and allows people to talk about and find humor in death. The Aztec Dance grupo Huitzilopochtli has created a special Aztec show, based on Aztec mythology, to celebrate Día de los Muertos. The dancers perform the Battle Dance which features two Aztec warriors. When one of the warriors perishes, his soul is greeted by another soul who leads him to his next life in the Aztec underworld of Mictlan, where the dead dwell. The sequence ends when the souls who reside in Mictlan perform the Día de los Muertos Dance.”

Grupo Huitzilopochtli Dance Workshop
2:30pm | Breckenridge Theatre Patio
Learn the history and significance of the danza to Dia de Los Muertos. The Mexica Grupo Huitzilopochtli has been in the Denver area for 40 years and is under the direction of Capitan Raul Chavez a 5th generation danzante from Mazatlan Mexico. This hands-on dance workshop will prepare families for the candlelight vigil on Saturday night and the Altar dedication on Sunday. Participants will be able to join in one of the grupos sacred dances for these two events if they wish.

Ofrenda Demonstration
3pm | Old Masonic Hall Patio
Creating oferendas is one of the most important traditions during Day of the Dead in Mexico—and in Mexican-American & Latinx communities worldwide. Oftentimes a photograph of the deceased is placed within the oferenda which is usually built in a three-tier pyramid type structure. A traditional ofrenda includes the four elements of wind, fire, water and earth, represented through papel picado (wind), candles (fire), beverages (water) and flowers (earth). Instructions/demo & history of the altar will be given, so that families can recreate their own oferenda at home.
In partnership with Metropolitan State University Of Denver Department of Chicana/Studies, CHAC Gallery & Cultural Center and Cal Duran

Take an otherwise unused item and make it useful again! Old sleeping bags have such great character and usable “parts”. Together, we will turn your old sleeping bag into a puff coat you can use in the colder weather. This different “format” for your old sleeping bag will make it feel “new” but is also practical. This project is called The Camping Jacket or Coleman Sacks (when made with a Coleman Sleeping Bag).

Bring your own sleeping bag or purchase one of ours for $10. Old comforters can also be used instead.

Effective September 15th, all BCA managed venues – Riverwalk Center, Breckenridge Theater, Eclipse Theater, and all of the venues and studios within the Breckenridge Arts District – will require either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test taken within 96 hours of the event. Beginning November 1st, all BCA venues will require proof of vaccination for all guests 12 and older. Children ages 2 to 11 must wear masks at all times. Guests 12 and older are not mandated to wear masks, although we strongly encourage it whenever guests are not actively eating and drinking. You may read the full policy here.  

What kid doesn’t like to play with clay?! Kids will learn the basics of working with clay while also exploring additional material possibilities. We’ll produce fun projects that will become treasured mantel pieces, however, they won’t be able to take projects home the same day. As is the nature of working with clay, all projects must thoroughly dry and be fired (which takes about 2 weeks). Then, you can enjoy your morning coffee out of the handmade mug your little one made for you.

Participants must be 6 or older to participate. The cost the class includes clay, tools and firing. Non-members $15 Members $12
