Artist Khadim Ali leads a program combining storytelling and art making using the one-thousand year-old Persian epic, the Shahnameh (Book of kings), to tell tales of contemporary culture and politics. Join us for this unique workshop that provides multiple suggestions and ideas for teaching and learning in the classroom. Includes curriculum materials. Registration is required.  


Khadim Ali’s
recent series of works, Rustam references the impact of violence and war on the minds of children. Originally from Bamiyan in Afghanistan and trained in miniature painting his work draws on imagery from ancient Persian narrative poetry. Khadim has offered workshops internationally and has returned to Bamiyan to work with children who grew up surrounded by war.
