This past October a group of Little Artists came together to create a mini San Francisco for the Day of the Dead celebration in Garfield Park. The Day of the Dead is a day to honor and celebrate our memories of those who we have lost. This mini San Francisco would become an altar for all of the Little Artists's loved ones that they have lost.
Many people from the surrounding S.F communities work hard each year to design all kinds of interactive altars for the Park. Our altar allowed people to write notes about their loved ones and place them into the city.
We began by making plaster puppets to represent our lost ones. These puppets were then placed into the city where we thought they would like it best! Flowers, candy, candles and toys were given to each altar.
Next we added details to all of our San Francisco buildings, bridges and parks.
See You at the Next Studio!
