Teacher Workshop: El Anatsui: When I Last Wrote to You about Africa
Teachers attending the UMMA workshop for El Anatsui: When I Last Wrote to You about Africa will explore the protean artistic talents reflected in and teaching possibilities of El Anatsui’s work with Joe Fusaro, Senior Education Advisor for Art21. They will enjoy a private gallery talk and a hands-on activity with take-home lesson plans. A light meal and a folder of contextual information will be available to all participants.
