“Students of all ages are encouraged to participate in the art of making traditional Mexican altar pieces expressing gratitude to loved ones no longer with us,” reads New Art Center’s site. “From paper cutting to piñata making, everyone is encouraged to take part in this three-day celebration being supervised by Zaira Meneses [a Mexican musician and recipient of the 2018 Boston Foundation Award] and Friends.”
