Beginning Henna: An Artist’s Circle
February 1 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday, repeating until February 8, 2020
Our henna artist’s circle will offer supportive instruction and ample practice time to learn henna application. We will begin by practicing the fundamentals of henna design in pencil, with henna paste on paper, and finally by placing designs on the body. We will practice together, forming a supportive community of aspiring artists and students of this ancient art. Henna has been used to create beautiful temporary body art in many cultures, from India to the Arabian Peninsula to North Africa. By the end of the four weeks you will have mastered several basic shapes and be able to create original henna designs on your hand or arm. Please enter through the 5th Street door.
Dates: January 18, 25, Feb 1, & 8 from 10:30 -11:30 am

Teaching Artist Bio: Our instructor, Ann Powers, has worked extensively in the literary arts, and lately finds herself increasingly drawn to the visual arts. She has been studying henna design for the past two years. She considers herself still very much a henna novice, and is eager to find other fans of this ancient art, share the knowledge and skills she has learned, as well as help form a working artists circle, a community of henna enthusiasts learning and growing and making beautiful art together.
