Activity, Summer Reading, Workshop
Henna artist Rachel-Anne Palacios will share the culture and tradition of henna art and demonstrate techniques. Participants will have the opportunity to practice working with henna and receive a beautiful design by Rachel-Anne. Each participant will receive their own cone of henna to take home. Henna paste is an organic mixture of USDA certified organic henna powder, essential oils of lavendar, tea tree, geranium, lemongrass, rosemary and peppermint. Organic hibiscus tea is also used to help the stain. Lemon juice and sugar is then applied to seal the design. Body art will last 3-10 days depending on placement and care.
Teens in grades 6-12 may sign up.
