Celebrate Dia de Muertos with the Community!


ShoreLake Arts is offering a mixture of activities to celebrate Dia de Muertos this year.


Visit the ShoreLake Arts Gallery from October 26 - November 2nd and add to the community Ofrenda (Altar) by bringing non-returnable photos of loved ones, and any other items you would like. Don't forget to pick up a sugar skull sticker and/or an art project worksheet - while supplies last!


On November 2, join ShoreLake Arts at the City of Shoreline’s Dia de Muertos Celebration at the Spartan Recreation Center from 5:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. ShoreLake Arts will be hosting two hands-on crafts: tissue paper flowers and a colorful papel picado.


Volunteers are needed to help with the craft-making on November 2 at the Spartan Recreation Center in Shoreline. For sign-up information: https://signup.com/go/ZASqgNp


About (from history.com): The Day of the Dead (el Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink, and celebration. A blend of Mesoamerican ritual, European religion and Spanish culture, the holiday is celebrated each year from October 31 - November 2.


Community Altar - Ofrendas (Spanish: "offering") honor, remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones who have departed, and the items on the altars help to lead their spirits home for the Days of the Dead.
