About The Teacher

**Presenting: Male Representation** - Part 1:  Sat, Oct 24th - 11am/ Part 2:  Sat, Oct 25th - 4pm

Part 1 is an interactive exploration of male representation in African and European art. What elements of masculine forms are emphasized and why? What kinds of comparisons can we make?

In Part 2 (optional) we will incorporate what was discovered in Part 1, as we explore simple ways to create art based upon the male form. Participants are encouraged to share all types of male images or artwork. Please do not let your level of facility limit your participation. Materials: Any simple combination of pencil, pen, marker, paper, paper bag, or scissors.
