About the Event

Diwali Art Workshop

Funded in part by the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance

Diwali, (also known as Dipawali), is India's largest holiday of the year. During this holiday, it is tradition to light clay lamps (deepa) outside your home to symbolize protection from darkness. This festival is as relevant to Hindus as the Christmas holiday is to Christians. Celebrate this Hindu holiday at the Museum with culturally rich activities during a very special Free Family Night!

DiwaliArt Workshop

5-8 pm, at Alexander Art Academy

Activities include creating a (flame free) Diwali Lamp and traditional Rangoli patterns. Each child will receive a card with their name written in Bengali and Hindi.
