Art Around the World: Benin - Bas Relief

Program Description

Event Description

Let's continue our journey around the world - through art!

Join us each month with a new Take and Make Kit highlighting a different type of folk art from countries, territories, and people around the world. For our February trip, we will be “traveling” to Benin! Along with information about Benin and it's history - this Take Home kit will contain the instructions and materials needed to make a bas relief style art piece. Bas relief is a piece of artwork that is sculpted, carved or molded in such a way that it barely protrudes from the background flat surface.
