Painting Projects in the Ghana Art Center

Mar 28, 2017 | 0 comments

Each weekend the Touch A Life kids gather in Connor Creative Art Center for art classes and art healing sessions. Kwame, our Art Center Director, teaches classical painting techniques and traditional West African art styles. This month, some of our older students learned about creating shadows with color.

During a later session, Doris and Benjamin A. demonstrated their skills to the group as they finished up their village scene paintings. They carefully signed each piece and gave them to our team to bring back to the United States. Some of the artwork will be available at the Touch A Life Art Auction this fall in Dallas!
