I have been working with an amazing team at McClure Elementary creating our school’s first Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) altar. My students have been studying, making and designing all the elements for this project. They also designed the altar, painted it and made the arch. We set it up in my classroom first, then transported it to Living Art of Tulsa gallery. The student’s altar to H.O. McClure (our school’s namesake) will be part of the 2013 Altared Space Exhibition and the 2013 Day of the Dead Festival on November 1st in down town Tulsa.
This was a huge undertaking, and I think they did a stunning job!!
