Sankofa is from the Akan Twi language of Ghana West Africa that means to “go back to the past and bring forward that which is useful.” Students will explore traditional art forms from the African continent that have spread around the world. Print with Adinkra stamps from Ghana, weave a journal wrap cover inspired by Ghanaian kenti cloth, and design African fabric art. Make an instrument inspired by the African diaspora, create a doll based on traditional African fetishes and design a Sankofa tribal banner to honor the past and celebrate the future.
Art Camps will be held in person in our spacious studio spaces. Students will be required to wear face masks and maintain social distance.
