Day of the Dead

Every year close to Halloween we look at the art of Mexico, specifically work around Day of the Dead. The students always love this project - drawing skulls, after all, IS awesome - and it's a great segway into thinking about art in different cultures, how art is used to reflect a value system and beliefs, etc. Plus, its an ideal project to work with drawing skills and techniques.
