Local instructors facilitate the learning curriculum. These activities bring to life a whole host of discussions and explorations into African archaeology, history and heritage, by making, for example, Egyptian Pyramids and Mummies, West African masks, clay pottery using traditional techniques, dinosaur costumes, and screen printed pirate t-shirts.
Current issues in Africa are also investigated, for instance, the challenges of environmental pollution through recycling projects, including mud cloth paper bags, bubble art, paper plate dream catchers, and papier mâché mugs.
Guest archaeologists, curators, artists, and writers with a particular area of interest and expertise, provide learning activities on a regular basis. The community is invited to view our exhibitions of the children’s artwork.
Classes are offered at a minimal fee to help offset the cost of the materials.
