EduCulture is an arts educational program designed to open the door for our families to the contributions African Americans have made to the development of the United States of America. The program will be a series of hands-on interactive arts and educational activities creating avenues of discovery to who they are through cultural exploration. EduCulture believes that African Americans are more than the slaves that came to this country in the bottom of the ships to be auction to the highest bidder!
Their programming has a heavy emphasis on visual arts and music – specifically sculpture, mixed media, and West African drumming. Through the creation of objects like masks, drums and kinaras, students will learn technical arts skills with an overall emphasis on self-pride, self-expression and self-discovery. Please see their supporting materials for an idea of the type of art that will be created in workshops
