Painted Paper Mache Skulls In Honor Of Dia De Los Muertos

In honor of Kirby Middle School's 2010 Hispanic Cultural Awareness Program, the 8th grade Art 2 students created
a VARIETY of art for display to educate peers and commemorate the event. The painted paper mache skulls in honor of Dia De Los Muertos were just some of the many types of sculptures studied and created.

By referencing various pictures and models, 8th graders first formed skull shaped wads of paper using masking tape and rubber bands to hold.

Next they used paper mache pulp and strips to cover their armatures.

Once dry, the skulls were sketched with a student created design.

Finally the skulls were painted and shown at Kirby Middle School's
Hispanic Cultural Awareness Program! Some of the skulls are still
on display in the school's library.
