Take a Break: Make Patterns/Art from Symbols

I was inspired by watching Saki Mafundikwa’s presentation at TED Ingenuity and elegance in ancient African alphabets.  I love Mafundikwa’s comment about the importance of looking inward for inspiration.

Today’s take a break is about making a drawing, sketch, painting or whatever else, this is inspired by symbols and alphabets. Below are resources to help get you started.

• West African Wisdom: Adinkra Symbols and Meanings. This includes Sankofa-Return and get it or learn from the past.
