August has come to a close and what a fantastic month it has been!
We @thekuumbakids had our FIRST EVER children's art workshops celebrating and honouring one of the Caribbean traditions of carnival. And had a mini competition on who could name all the Caribbean islands by their flag!! -
And of course the Notting hill carnival put on a wonderful performance with steel pans, masquerades, and feathered costumes. Which was created by co founder and Trinidadian political activist Claudia Jones in response to the overt racial tensions. -
We are passionate about providing a practical means of teaching history and culture where children can feel free to creatively express themselves. Kuumba meaning Creativity in Swahili is a divine energy that helps to develop our sense of vision and purpose. -
Look out for posters of the African centred Art for 4-9 yrs at @moonlaneink starting 13th September!
