Cushing Art Students Participate in Tyler Museum of Art Event

Day of the Dead

The Tyler Museum of Art is hosting its 11th annual Day of the Dead event featuring art created by middle school students. CUSHING JH Art students participated!

Day of the Dead is a fun, family-based Mexican holiday. Although it is celebrated around the same time as Halloween, instead of spooky trick-or-treats it is a time to honor family members and friends who have passed away. Altars are built to honor the dead, food and treats are left in cemeteries for them, and festivities are held over three days. This year, Day of the Dead will be from October 31st to November 2nd.

Cushing JH Art students had the honor to participate and produce stunning creations while gaining knowledge about an important Mexican holiday.
