Event Details

Events at SierraIn connection with Sierra's La Semana Latina celebration, come participate in this fun crafting class. Learn about Papel Picado on Wednesday, March 21 from 12:30 - 2pm at the Rocklin Campus Amphitheater. 

Papel picado, or perforated paper, literally means pecked paper. It is a decorative craft made out of paper cut into beautiful and elaborate designs. It is considered a Mexican folk art. The designs are commonly cut from folded colored tissue paper using a guide or template and small sharp scissors. Common themes include birds, floral designs, and skeletons. They are commonly displayed for both secular and religious occasions, such as Easter, Christmas, the Day of the Dead, as well as during weddings, baptisms, and christenings. 

La Semana Latina: Latino History, Culture and Significance.

The Student Success Scorecard hints at the richness of diversity that uniquely defines Sierra College. As a college campus of higher learning, our obligation is to enhance knowledge by providing innovative and real-life programs of study for students and surrounding communities.

One distinct example is La Semana Latina: A concentrated look at Latino History, Culture and Significance.

During the month of March, Sierra College schedules an annual series of student programs and activities to help in our understanding of the beauty, complexity and diversity of the Latino community. Cited by the U.S. Census Bureau as the largest ethnic minority group in the nation, it is easy to see how the value of our understanding becomes essential and meaningful.

Please accept our invitation to visit and learn about the American experience of being Latino.
