Participants will explore the figurative art of the ancient Kingdom of Benin. They will make observations of the development of the stylized treatment of facial features (especially the eye).

This stylization became a canon that can be found in traditional sculpture throughout Benin. Using the same method of breaking down the eye into simple lines and shapes, the participants will create a contemporary abstract work of art in colored paper. Emphasis will be placed on the Elements line, shape, color and texture. When organizing their design, the Principles of balance, rhythm, emphasis and harmony should be of great concern.

This workshop is presented as part of the museum’s series of Workshop Wednesdays. Every first and third Wednesdays of the month, stop by the museum for drop-in classes from trained teachers. Stay for as little or as long as you like to complete your masterpiece. All skill levels and ages welcome; participants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult. First come, first served, Space Limited
