Teens ages 13-18 can explore henna tattoo art from Morocco, Pakistan and East India at the Teen Tattoo Workshop happening Sept. 15, 17 and 19. Fine Arts for Children & Teenagers (FACT) will bring a wide range of tattoo designs from Morocco, Pakistan, and East Indian for students to study and create.
Henna is a temporary dye. Designs for temporary tattoos have been used for hundreds of years by many cultures worldwide. Often, people would add a temporary tattoo to celebrate a marriage or other ceremony in their culture. This workshop will focus on creating artistic designs that can be carried out on paper, fabric, or other objects.
