Art Classes With Mia November 2012

Que Pasa Creative Creaters!!!
So much going on and always on Divine Time! October is not over… so much to do, see and share. As we shift from one season to the next, it’s like shedding old skin and growing a new layer. It’s new growth, a new beginning, fresh start and a new day. The Fall is Mother Nature’s canvas of color and explosion. The changing colors of Autumn is inspiring, changing shapes and moods of sky and nature is a welcoming art piece that only Mother Nature can provide. It’s a beautiful collaboration of nature and universe providing us with inspiration to grow, explore and contribute to the beauty.

Small Vejigante mask making

November 28, 2012 6:30PM – 8:00PM Ages 5 – 16: 
Vejigante history and Art Culture ~

A vejigante is a folkloric character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations (mainly seen in Carnival time). Traditional colors of the Vejigantes were black, red, white, and yellow. Today, vejigantes wear brightly colored, ornate masks of all colors and a costume with bat-like wings. The term vejigante derives from the word vejiga (bladder) and gigante (giant), due to custom of blowing up and painting cow bladders. The masks are often linked to many festivals that continue today, especially in Loíza and Ponce.

We will discuss the history of the Vejigante masks and create one of our very own to be displayed as a piece of art.
