ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES

The Adult Education Program provides pictures of African arts and cultures in close focus. Each month, one or two works of art are investigated in order to better see them clearly within their cultural context.

These educational sessions provide the general public with an opportunity to be introduced to new works of art, learn a bit more about old favorites and build a deeper understanding about the African continent.
