Description of Services

Adinkra Stamping 
Adinkra stamping is a printing process of the Ashanti people of Ghana. It is a way that the Ashanti people connect with maxims and proverbs. In this two part series, participants will learn about Adinkra cloth and its symbols and create their own Adinkra cloth which will be used to make a pillow.

Students will:

  • Learn about African culture (specifically the Akan of Ghana) through the art of Adinkra stamping
  • Identify specific Adinkra symbols and related proverbs and concepts
  • Understand the role of nonverbal communication in society
  • Create and design an Adinkra pillow

I will give students a history of Adinkra cloth and explain the use of Adinkra symbols by presenting Adinkra cloth, Ghanaian money, as well as photographs of the use of Adinkra cloth throughout the globe. Students will receive a handout and have access to an Adinkra dictionary which they will use to choose the symbols they intend to stamp. They will receive instruction on different design possibilities and will work on their project over the course of two sessions.

Participants should be able to identify and define their chosen symbols, as well as stamp and design their own pillows.

Students are assessed based on participation and performance.

Underwater World 
During an eight week residency participants will have an introduction to marine biology through a multi-disciplinary artistic experience. Students will have to an opportunity to see preserved specimens of sea life. Activities include movement, theater, the creation of a mural and gyotaku, an ancient Japanese printing form.

The main educational goal for the "Underwater World" residency is that students have a basic understanding of marine life and ecosystem. They will begin to recognize marine plants and sea life and develop new vocabulary specific to marine biology or the art methods used for the residency. They will also learn about how fishing gave way to the Japanese art form known as "gyotaku."

Students will learn about marine life and ecosystem through hands on experience. They will have the opportunity to see preserved animals. Every week they will be given a new set of vocabulary specific to the activity. They will read or be read literature that is age appropriate that connects to marine biology. The students will work on several artistic projects that will allow them to synthesize the information they were presented. Some of the projects include working with clay to create three-dimensional figures as well as creating a mural. They will participate in theatrical activities specific to the residency. Students will learn about "gyotaku" Japanese fish printing. After being provided the history of the art form they will use real fish to do their printing. 

Students are assessed based on participation and performance and should be able to:

  • Follow the lesson plan from week to week, including completing the scheduled projects. identify, classify, and define the plants and animals shown during the residency.
  • Use new vocabulary in dialogue.
