What is Catrina Face Painting?
The Catrina Face Painting workshop builds on the Mexican tradition of celebrating "Day of the Dead" or "Dia de los Muertos." Skulls – known as calaveras or calacas in Mexico – are an essential part of the symbolism of Dia de los Muertos. They are used not only as the basis for painting faces, but also are the shape of candy such as sugar skulls and for many skeleton-inspired decorations. Many face-painting designs of skulls also incorporate flowers.
The meaning of el Dia de los Muertos face-painting is not only to remember the dead, but also to overcome the fear of death and celebrate life! Most of all, it is a fun way to create unique and beautiful masquerades!
