Travel the world through art making in an immersive week long workshop! We begin by creating our very own artful passports. Then we jet off to a variety of countries such as India, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, Canada and China. We look at art forms and artistic cultures from each of these different countries as we learn traditional methods and techniques to apply to our own art pieces. Some of our projects include elaborate Chinese fans, Aboriginal Australian dot paintings, South African masks and drums, woven Mexican textiles and tin art or hojalata, plus intricate Indian henna hands and peacock illustrations. We create with a wide variety of worldly artistic mediums such as cardboard, construction paper, yarn, ink, paint, glue and more.
