November at CMOM: Día de los Muertos, Diwali, and Delicious Designs

Images of art projects from left to right include: a dinner plate collage for Thanksgiving (November 24 – 28); marigold flowers for Dia de los Muertos community installation (November 2); and fireworks paintings for Diwali (November 3 – 6).


Every month at CMOM, visitors of all ages can get creative in our galleries and participate in a range of different art-making activities, workshops, dance, music and read-alouds.

This November, join CMOM to celebrate the best of the season—from learning the steps and gestures of kathak, a traditional Indian dance, for Diwali; to creating a community installation of handcrafted paper marigolds for Día de los Muertos; to making a traditional thanksgiving meal all out of paper! The month also includes weeks dedicated to puppetmaking—for little hands, fingers, and even toes—and to exploring the flavors of fall. A full line up of programs, all of which are free with admission, follows below, listed in chronological order:
