Preparing for the Day of the Dead Exhibition at Lawndale

Through the Day of the Dead Education Program, Lawndale Art Center (LAC) encourages teachers to educate their students about this important Mexican event and its related art practices. LAC staff assists teachers in coordinating activities for their students.

Sharpstown Middle School Students work hard to express their ideas for the exhibition at Lawndale Art Center, 2003

In Ms. Schmidt's class students blend ideas and process. Re-conceptualizing the idea of honoring departed family members, the students create mini-altars honoring something or someone that is not currently a part of their life.
