Artful Stories: the Water Princess
Sat., 11-16-2019
10-11:30 a.m.
Michael C. Carlos Museum
571 South Kilgo Cir NE, Atlanta, GA 30322

The story of Princess Gie Gie and her long daily trek for water is based on high-fashion model Georgie Badiel’s childhood experience growing up in Burkina Faso. After hearing the story and looking closely at a Makonde water vessel, a finely-decorated clay vessel from Mozambique, children will head to the studio to make clay pinch pots. Proceeds from the sale of this book support the work of the Georgie Badiel Foundation, which builds wells in Burkina Faso and other countries in Africa.

For preschoolers and kindergarteners with an accompanying adult. For more information, contact Alyson Vuley at 404-727-0519 or avuley@emory.edu.

This program is free, but registration is required online.
