My Art beats in London Junior!
Bizzie Bodies in partnership with Dockland Settlements is hosting a series of workshops to celebrate Black History Month. During October, children aged between 5 to 11 years old are invited to try their hand at some arts at the Dockland Settlements Community Centre culminating in an exhibition of all of the work on 29th October 2016 at a different location. All the workshops are free of charge and only one activity can be booked out of the four Visual art activities which are ceramics - textile - jewelry - tribal masks.
Tribal Mask, 25th October 2016 from 10.00AM to 1.00PM – You are invited to this free workshop delivered by a professional artist. Why not come along and try to throw some pots or create your very own work of art that will be displayed to the public at an exhibition on 29th October. This workshop is free and open to all but has limited spaces so please order a ticket through Eventbrite. Please also be aware that as places are limited you are expected to attend or cancel at least a week in advance.
Another common subject of African masks is a woman's face, usually based on a specific culture's ideal of feminine beauty, by having long curved eyelashes, almond-shaped eyes, ect., as all these are considered good-looking traits. In many cases, wearing masks that represent feminine beauty is strictly reserved to men so come along and design your own which you will wear during a phot-shoot (portrait) and showcase during the same week.
