We invite kids and families to join this Power Kids workshop called Print/Pattern!

After a tour of the North Gallery, focusing on Yanomami’s culture of body painting, inspired by Sheroanawe Hakihiiwe’s drawings in the North Gallery, families will design their symbols and use printmaking techniques to reproduce them. Participants will create a poster of their own symbols by the end of the artmaking activity.
