About

Get creative with NCMA art and artists at home. Each activity kit brings art-making inspiration to you with materials for a complete hands-on project. Kits are designed for all ages to enjoy, and written instructions are included. Instructions are available in English and Spanish.

This kit provides materials to design and assemble a collaborative cut-paper collage inspired by the colorful patterns of Ghanaian kente cloth. Kits are first come, first served and are available for pickup at the Museum until they run out. Visit our Family Resources page for the instructions for this project and past kits.
