Art & Craft for Secondary Schools and Colleges

Welcome to African Activities Art Textile and Craft workshops for secondary schools. Kwame Bakoji-Hume will bring a global dimension to students artwork enabling them to both further their art and explore global citizenship.

Secondary school art workshops with African Activities will take the art work of Kwame Bakoji-Hume as a staring point. Kwame will then facilitate students developing their own artworks exploring the themes common in his work; duality, environmental fragility, gender, power and injustice. Short workshops and long term art residencies are available. Content is tailored to meet the needs and learning objectives of your students.

Running a workshop

 

Let us know your learning objectives and desired outcomes for your secondary school we can work together to plan the best outcome for your school.

 

For junk modelling we will ask students to select specific items.  For example, to make masks they will need to bring a milk bottle and newspapers and magazines.

 

For Adinkra there is a materials charge of £10 per class of 30.

 

What can we expect?

 

Kwame will introduce the context to each art form and provide a biography and overview of his art themes and messaging. Students will then be encouraged to get in touch with their own creativity and themes. The workshop will be though provoking and vibrant.
