African Mask-Making Workshop: Professional Development Experiences of Diverse Participants
Keywords:multicultural art, African mask-making, professional development, multicultural workshop, teacher education
Diverse education professionals learned about African cultures in a workshop experience by making African masks using authentic symbolism. Analysis of reflections to evaluate the workshop for applicability to participants with and without African heritage showed that both groups expanded their cultural knowledge of traditional African ethnic groups. Those participants with African heritage noted valuing of women while those without African heritage expressed appreciation for African culture, self-evaluation of work, and the desire to investigate their own heritages.
