This was what the 1st part of my day looked like. Feeling the last of my #nichos that i picked up in #mexico in 2016. Its been over 2 years since i have been back to visit my artesano family in guanajuato and i am due for another visit. I brought back over 400 various sizes on that last trip and i am down to my last box of less than 20. Going to try and work myself into making my own out of tooling aluminium again until i lock into a new gig this summer that might allow me to be able to explore deeper into my fascination and obsession with metal. If you want to see these get worked on and some finished ones, come visit me this Sunday @oaklandmuseumca from 12-4 while i do demos of how i decorate these babies up. #artmom #thisiswhatiquitmyjobfor #artmom #multiculturalartseducator #multiculturalartsed #mexicanfolkart #traditionalarts #artisesucation

Good times @sccld #morganhill branch today! We had a muertos craft party! I facilitated #repujado #mexicantinart and there were also #crayolamodelmagic #ofrendas, skeletons to paint, velvet coloring sheets and a how to make an ofrenda demo done by the visiting artist, yours truly! I am in the thick of programming for the next three weeks and am starting to feel the effects of overworking. Not complaing, super grateful to be in demand as opposed to be looking for work. All of this is going to pay off with a nice break once this is over. Tomorrow I'll be at the @aclibrary Dublin branch from 4-5pm doing more repujado and calavera paper masks. Friday I'll be in san carlos for an 11am model magic alebrijes program and Sunday I'll be @museumca #diadelosmuertos community celebration from 12-4 doing all day demos on how i put my nichos together and selling work. More programming next week. I'll post about that in the next few days. Thanks for the support and encouragement and feliz dia de los muertos season! #thisiswhatiquitmyjobfor #artmom #multiculturalartseducator #multiculturalartsed #mexicanfolkart #traditionalarts #artisesucation

Fully justified in why i love to do what i do today @smclibraries @belmontlibrary! Participants learned about #alebrijes, #spiritanimals and #muertito figurines and created their own works of art out of #crayolamodelmagic. I also created a mini #ofrenda for library goers to add their photos to for dia de los muertos. #thisiswhatiquitmyjobfor #artmom #multiculturalartseducator #multiculturalartsed #mexicanfolkart #traditionalarts #artisesucation

Today @smclibraries #sanchezlibrary participants made #papelpicado as part of their monday #steam programs. In honor of #latinxhertiagemonth and #diadelosmuertos, families learned how the #arteaanos in #mexico make papel out of stacks of tissuepaper and metal templates. Papel picado is used for lots of different celebratory occassions. Dia de los muertos ones have images of skeletons depicting occupations that people had while they were living as well as other traditional motifs and subject matters. #thisiswhatiquitmyjobfor #artmom #multiculturalartseducator #multiculturalartsed #mexicanfolkart #traditionalarts #artisesucation

#wondertripletpowersactivate #formof #badasswomen saying hello to our creative side organically joining forces! Thank you to the #superhuman feats of @lillilanier and her amazing #origami skills. She created the origami #FridaKahlo out of over 12,000 pieces of folded paper! @wmoonbeam and i tagged teamed on the floral #mandala and the rest is history. What a #wonderful, #joyous night of celebrating our loved ones and our beloved rene of @somarts. The tributes to him are so deep and meaningful. I honestly kept thinking that i was seeing him out of the corner of my eye and waiting for him to pass by. Its an honor to be part of this collaboration in this sacred space. Feeling #grateful, encouraged and in the space i should be in with these two wonderful art #soulsisters

The #FridaKahlo dress from the leon trotsky painting has made its way to @clevelandculturalarts! It first debuted @seewhatyouthink in 2008 for their portraits of an icon exhibit of photos of #friducha taken by her father. Then the dress was shown at the #stateofcalifornia building in 2009 for the first #themanyfacesoffrida before she stood proudly at the #diadelosmuertos fruitvale  celebration later that year. The dress needs some adjusting and flowers so she'll be good to go for all of the students to see. @stonecarver_chica bust of frida fits perfectly between the two dresses. I love this time of year, especially in #mexico. More photos of the final version of this installation this weekend! In the meantime, come check out the @somarts opening of their dia de los muertos exhibition from 6-9pm to see @lillilanier's #origami #frida in all of her glory with collaborative elements by @wmoonbeam and myself on the #mandalas. #welovefrida #mexicanfolkart #artemexicano #traditionalarts #artmom #milagros  #multiculturalartseducator #multiculturalartsed #diadelosmuertos  #folkart #artisesucation

Getting ready to celebrate the love of my homies @abuntingceramics and @_shemoel tomorrow and had to hook up the #mendhi! #HappyFriday y'all! #itsgettinghotinhere

Super fun day  at #oaktoberfest! Here are some of the #nichos that went home with some of the amazing folks i met today. I love being able to sit and talk to people about my work. 9x out if 10 folks don't think i make the stuff i sell. It was nice to just work on what i have been missing for two days straight and then see them go home with someone. I chose not to do any henna this weekend because i just wanted to be in my element.  Grateful to have a team of ride or dies that helps me out. My friends who are my family and my immediate family who is always in it. Thankful for the pause that you all take to keep me rolling. #artmom #multiculturalartseducator #multiculturalartsed #mexicanfolkart #traditionalarts #artemexicano #oaklandnative
