First Ordinary Hoosier teaches Papel Picado art

 

NASHVILLE, Ind. — She doesn’t necessarily consider herself a Hoosier, but Casandra Karl says she loves her home in Brown County, Ind. She doesn’t plan to leave until her husband carries her out by her feet.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in archaeology and studied Medieval Latin, history and art. Karl also got a graduate degree in museum studies. Her passion centers around sharing history with others.

That’s why this Wisconsin-native-turned-Hoosier-transplant is sharing Papel Picado, a traditional Mexican art, with her neighbors.
