Creative Visions for Kids: Flat-Style Painting
The Museum of Native American History (MONAH) is proud to present Mvskoke Creek (Muscogee Creek) artist, Johnnie Diacon, in a special Creative Visions for Kids: Flat-Style Painting! The workshop will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2019, from 1:00pm - 3:00pm. Diacon will delve into a traditional Native painting style that is known to the Five Civilized Tribes: Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Seminole. Participants will have a chance in this hands-on workshop to learn about the style of painting and create their very own Flat-Style piece of art. This workshop is geared to kids aged six to fifteen. Creative Visions is a monthly series that invites Native artists to speak and lead workshops on modern and traditional forms of Native American Art. MONAH seeks to preserve and spread historical traditions by bringing them into a modern view and experience. By surrounding participants with historical art and artifacts, they will be invited into opportunities to cultivate understanding, respect, and increased awareness of cultural context by a hands-on exploration of Native art. Creative Visions for Kids is open to anyone ages 6 and older. Participants must register for free online through the MONAH website or by calling the museum. Attendance will be taken at the door prior to entering the event space.
