Touch, Play and Learn: Explore African Art with Paula Coleman

national museum of art

Book cover of African art bookHave you ever been curious about African Art? Thought it was beautiful but wondered what certain art objects felt like and what materials they were made from?

At most museums, the policy is “look but don’t touch.” Fortunately that won’t be the case at Anacostia Neighborhood Library!

Please join Paula Coleman, a docent for the Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, as she leads an all-ages, hands-on program emphasizing the art of Africa on Saturday, Jan. 18 at 11:30 a.m. Attendees should look forward to a discussion on the various regions of Africa and the art produced with artwork and artifacts on display; as well as an interactive music and dance presentation that will afford participants the opportunity to learn a few traditional dances. 

Please call 202-698-1959 with any questions.
