During the workshops, which are being held daily through Sunday, Oct. 28, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., children are invited to decorate their own plastic craneos (human skulls). There is a 30-peso charge to recuperate the price of materials.

Those interested in participating in the workshops should register through the Departamento de Comunicación Educativa of the National Anthropology Museum by calling 4040-5370, ext. 412345 and 412348.
