This summer, the Museum of Anthropology will introduce a new one-day workshop program for children ages 12 to 15. The offering for 2013 is entitled Rugs, Carpets, & Mats. During the workshop, children will look at examples of from around the world and learn about weaving techniques, materials, and the importance of designs. Participants will then complete an in-depth art project painting their own canvas rug with traditional designs.
Museum Educator Tina Smith said, “We believe that this workshop will provide an opportunity to engage an age group that is often underserved, particularly during the summer months, with a unique hands-on learning experience.”
The one-day workshop will take place on Monday, July 29, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The fee is $45 ($30 for MOA Friends), which includes all supplies and a snack. Children can bring a bag lunch or one can be provided for an additional $10 fee. The workshop is limited to 10 children. Registration and payment for the program guarantees a spot.
