Event Description:
“Love they neighbor as thyself” – Participants will create hand sculptures which expresses the art motifs of many different cultures. 
This workshop is for ages 5-12 years.  No prior ability or knowledge is required.  Children will learn to embrace and enjoy the arts of many nations.  The Hamsa (hand symbol) is used by all major religions in the world.  It can be a symbol of warding off evil but is also used as a symbol of reaching across cultures to achieve understanding.  In Christianity it was originally on open palm hand but is frequently seen as two hands today.  In Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism it is typically an open palm hand.  Sometimes a flower, fish, an all seeing and protecting eye, and a wheel are included as symbols with the hand.
