Bring your natural curiosity and craftiness into FREE live learning sessions by Penn Museum educators. Every Tuesday, join these 30-minute sessions—perfect for kids in elementary to middle school—to dig deeper into world cultures, archaeology, and anthropology with demonstrations of hands-on projects you can try at home!

Visual symbols can be decorative while also communicating important messages about shared beliefs and traditions. The Akan people and Asante people of Ghana have used Adinkra symbols to decorate fabric, pottery, and more. Learn how select symbols represent objects associated with unique stories or beliefs. Follow along to draw a symbol yourself and discover the meaning!

Recommended Materials: Paper and pencils, crayons, or markers.
