Art students plan family event for Halloween

William Woods University’s Thriving
Artists’ Group will host an event for families in the community this Halloween.
The Dia de los Muertos celebration will feature art projects, education about
the ancient Mexican holiday and more for children of all ages.
 
The Dia de los Muertos Halloween
celebration will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 31 in the lobby of
Gladys Woods Kemper Center for the Arts. Admission is free. 
 
The group invites parents to bring
their children dressed in their Halloween costumes to decorate skull-shaped
cookies, listen to music and take pictures with the friendly skeleton. 
 
The celebration will also
incorporate the culture of Dia de los Muertos. 
Guests can sample the traditional “dead bread,” create take-home art
projects and watch an educational presentation on the holiday.
 
The Thriving Artists’ Group
includes William Woods students passionate about the fine arts.  The club hosts several events throughout the
year educating students and the Fulton community on the arts, such as events
and programs that reach out to children in the area through Kemper’s Kids.
 
The next Kemper’s Kids event will
be an all-day Christmas celebration, set to take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 8.
