Event Details

Let's go to Africa: Exploring The Art of Weapons

Please note that the date of this workshop has been changed. It is now being held on November 8, 2014 NOT November 1st.

In this workshop we will consider the beauty and social significance of weapons made by more than forty culture groups across Africa. Some were created for offensive use, others for defense, and some for ceremonial use only. All of them reveal the mastery of their makers and express social ideals related to male beauty, power, and warriorhood. We will explore these weapons through careful looking and drawing activities. In the studio we will create our own prestige objects using a variety of materials. For children ages 7-12 and their adult companions. Enrollment is limited.
