Children learn that in African culture an object of art is always meant to be useful first and beautiful second. For example, in our mask making workshop children learn that the use of masks was an important part of the spirit world that existed in the lives of the African people and, that the masks were thought to portray the faces of Gods and spirits.
Please choose from the range of workshops below:
