Master artist shares techniques during Black History Month

In honor of Black History Month, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African Art has partnered with the Department of Fine and Performing Arts to host master artist workshops on the art of batik, the intricate process of decorating cloth with wax and dye.

The master class workshop series runs through Friday, Feb. 14 in the Fine and Performing Arts Center’s BlackBox Theater. Tunde Odunlade, Nigeria’s pre-eminent batik artist, will teach about the traditional batik technique and introduce his method using paper, instead of cloth.
