Maya Escobar is a performance artist and educator who is as passionate and creative as they get. She offered to create a special video to teach us how to make a unique Dia de los Muertos art project: individuales or placemats.
The video itself is a work of art. I will spare you the words and have it speak for itself.

Great job Maya! Your work always so beautiful and colorful. I think the kids and I will be making one of these.
The video is definitely a work of ART! Absolutely loved it and the idea of the individuales! Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Maya!
