Family Craft Friday: Adinkra Stamps

UP COMING EVENTS AT the Museum OF African Art in NYC

Family Craft Friday: Adinkra Stamps

Location: Charles A. Dana Discovery Center inside Central Park on 110th St between Fifth and Lenox Aves

Museum for African Art educators will guide participants in using Adinkra symbols from Ghana to create their own printed cloth.

The Ashante people in Ghana use these visual symbols to express concepts and meanings on clothing and other textiles, walls, pottery, and woodcarvings.

This event is the second of three special Family Fridays co-presented by The Central Park Conservancy that features art making activities inspired by nature and African art.

Join us on Friday, March 18 from 2:00-4:00 pm for the last program.

FREE. No advance registration. All ages welcome. Space is limited, no afterschool groups please. For more information, call 212-860-1370.

Museum for African Art education programs are supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc.
