Batik & ROOTS

In keeping with our tradition of rounding out our drum and dance classes with some visual arts, the Fall ROOTS class had a wonderful batik session with Eloise Holland recently. Using traditional Adinkra symbols that she made into stamps, the kids used hot wax to create the resist on cloth, and then dipped them into the vat of their dye choice. A couple weeks later and the results are gorgeous! We will be displaying them at our ROOTS Open House December 6 from 6:45-7:15pm, where the ROOTS kids will perform some pieces they have been working on. This group has accomplished a lot this Fall, including two performances already. Their energy and enthusiasm is amazing.
