Family Legends held a workshop for children on Saturday, May 11, at the Alexandria Black History Museum. Family Legends is a project of Living Legends of Alexandria.
Instructor Sushmita Mazumdar is a local book artist, writer, and educator. She teaches art education programs for children as well as adult groups to encourage storytelling and passing on cultural heritage from one generation to the next.
This bookmaking workshop is a fun and informative art class designed for families with children 6 -12 years. Adults and children work together to choose a “legend” in their family, write their story, and make it into a handmade storybook to take home.
The next workshop will be offered on Saturday, June 15, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., the Saturday before Father's Day.
