Travel the World at the Academy Art Museum takes children 6+ and their parents on a “trip” to a far-away country…where they will work together on an art project and enjoy tasty snacks typical of that country. So far, we have traveled to Australia, Italy, and Japan and learned about Aboriginal dot paintings, Sicilian marionettes, and folded card stock gift-boxes. Our next stop will be Ghana. We will be inspired by the work of El Anatsui, who works with recycled materials to create stunning wall-hangings. All aboard! There is no cost for this trip…but please let us know if you are coming as it will help us plan. Sign up online at academyartmuseum.org.
This event is offered at the Museum in conjunction with the Chesapeake Multicultural Resource Center (ChesMRC) and was co-developed with Deborah Scales, ChesMRC’s art enrichment teacher.
