Paint your own African mask

Children learn about African art and decorate their own masterpiece. 

Many African societies have no extensive written culture so masked dances serve to teach people right from wrong. When a dancer wears a Dan mask he becomes the spirit of that mask. A masked dancer will speak in the language of the spirits and his words are interpreted by a wise man. 

The children decorate their own masks with geometric designs. We provide all equipment and materials for every child to take part.
