Day of the Dead information for teachers and students
This is a special package I helped put together for http://www.azcentral.com. It features the artwork of my husband, Patrick Murillo. He painted a series of pieces exclusively for this education packet! All images are copyrighted. Thanks! enjoy!
azcentral.com is proud to offer a downloadable education companion to our Dia de los Muertos site.
Adults and children alike often get their first exposure to this important celebration through the colorful art, food and folk traditions of the holiday and its close association with the more common Halloween celebration.
Our goal is to educate those seeking information on this celebration through articles, original art, and interactive projects. We hope that you use this information as well the pages found on the web site to enrich young minds as well as your own.
