ADL art teacher Tina Logan hosted a Dia de los Muertos craft time at the Brownell Library in Essex Jct. on Nov. 1. Logan constructed an ofrenda, or altar, honoring the dead, and taught students about the history of the holiday and how it is celebrated in Mexico. Kids painted skulls and small craft dolls in bright colors and ate traditional snacks from the holiday.
