Read what people have to say about Kuumba Expressions. -" My grandkids had a wonderful time at the Kuumba Expressions ( Art Workshop) held on January 31, 2015 at Culture Coffee. They were engaged the entire time. The workshop was therapeutic, relaxing (my grandson on a normal day cannot be still for 10 mins) and amazingly educational. Ms. Abney gave them Art History lessons as she had them to explore various styles of art. She pointed out similarities of the kids work with those of famous artists such as Romare Bearden, Pablo Picasso, Jacob Lawrence and many others. She exposed them to lines, shapes, brushes. She is so talented and knowledgeable about her craft. The other children there also had a great time and they were all proud of their work. She even had them display their works in the Art Gallery where they discussed their pieces and thoughts behind their creativeness. My grandchildren want to to back again. Thank you Ms. Abney you bring out the creativity in children who had no idea they have gifts of expression." - Roxanne Richardson
