It was a beautiful, sunny, sometimes windy day for our inaugural art class. Thank you everyone for coming! We read The Magic Gourd by local author, Baba Wagué Diakité.Then the music of Mali drifted on the deck as we painted some "mud cloths" of our own design. Mud cloth or Bogolanfini (“Bo-ho-lahn-FEE-nee”) is made by the Bambara people of Mali. They dye fabric brown and black and paint lines, circles, zigzags, and oval shapes with a special mud. If you want to learn more about mud cloths you can check out this wonderful interactive web site from the Smithsonian Museum. We also started filling in our passports this week! Come and join us next week! Call or drop by to sign-up!
