Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos" at Maspeth High School 1

Paint Night at MHS

This year’s paint night theme at Maspeth High School was “Day of the Dead, Día de los Muertos,” a traditional Mexican holiday.

Juniors Yi lin and Noah instructed a group of fifty participants step-by-step on how to create a painting. Other art club members assisted with set up, distribution of supplies, cleanup and guiding the evening’s artists.

Paint night is a unique event at Maspeth HS, as it attracts all ages within the Maspeth community to participate in a night of creativity and fun. Art club seniors Mara and Gordon played a huge role in making this event run smoothly doing more behind the scenes planning and organizing.
