   Studio ZG is hosting Needville artist Kayle Sanchez and her “Dia De Los Muertos” inspired art Monday, Nov. 2 from 5 – 8 p.m.
   The event is at Studio ZG at 1820 7th St. in Bay City.
   Costumes are welcome and encouraged.
   The Real Deal Grill food truck will be present as well as Wine by Lis.
   “This is a one night only event,” said Zeinab Ghais, owner of Studio ZG.
   Sanchez graduated Needville High School in 2012.
   “I started my artwork when I was a full time student at Wharton County Junior College,” she said.
   “I have recently received my Associates Degree in Psychology, and I am now enrolled in courses at the University of Houston Victoria campus.”
   After graduation she underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor.
   “Several months after my first surgery, I had to undergo a second surgery for the placement of a shunt, due to the development of hydrocephalus,” said Sanchez.
   “I would like to eventually be able to donate to the Hydrocephalus Association to help find a cure for Hydrocephalus.”
   Her love of art started at a young age.
   “I have always been into crafts since I was a child,” said Sanchez.
   “I loved to draw and paint. I am self-taught, I never thought to become an artist, it is more of my hobby.”
   She draws her inspiration from her culture and time as a Folklorico Dancer.
