Art – Urban Promise School

The 3rd – 7th graders at Urban Promise School have taken a lesson in creativity from the nomadic people of Ethiopia’s Omo River Valley.  The Surma and Mursi tribes share a taste for body painting and extravagant decorations borrowed from nature.

This project was inspired by the book Natural Fashion: Tribal Decorations from Africa by Hans Silverster.
