Tapete Artist Fulgencio Lazo at UCDS


UCDS 5th grade students had the opportunity last week to work with Mexican artist Fulgencio Lazo to create a large Tapete.

Tapetes are used in parts of Mexico, particularly in the southern state of Oaxaca, to mark the death of loved ones throughout the year. These large murals include symbols and images such as skeletons, flowers, food and musical instruments that represent El día de los muertos.

Please enjoy this documentary video of the process.
