Aga Khan Museum says
Are you fascinated by "mehndi" (henna) designs? Learn about the roots and practices of "mehndi" traditions in the Indian subcontinent, and create a unique paper-based art piece inspired by the flora of the Aga Khan Park!

Artist Fatima Malik will take students on a journey to explore the roots and practices of the "mehndi" traditions in the Islamic world, and how these ancient traditions and motifs have inspired her own expressive works on paper. The discovery process will also include developing an understanding of the underlying design structure of intricate "mehndi" designs. Hands-on activities will include practicing some of the classic, free-form "mehndi" designs of the Indian subcontinent.
