Dear ArtsEdNetters:

Since it is now officially fall, my thoughts are turning to the
Mexican Days of the Dead (this month is also Hispanic Heritage
Month). I'm giving a workshop on the Days of the Dead this
coming Thursday at TCU in Fort Worth and just wrote a new
handout for making "ofrendas" (memorials) to artists. If anyone
is interested in a copy, respond just to me and I will email it
(it's just one page). If anyone does use it to create artist
ofrendas, I would appreciate pictures of it for our web site
(the Days of the Dead are November 1 and 2, so you have some time!).
