Animalistic Fun!

This month the Family Sunday focus will be Animals! The San Diego Zoo will be bringing two different animals to present to attendees for a special animal encounter at 1pm! (So cool!) Aside from the animal presentations, Aunt Li-Anne, a storyteller whose created original stories inspired by the new Mingei Museum animal exhibit, Menagerie – Artful Animals from the Permanent Collection, will be telling stories aloud at both 2:30pm and 3:15pm. The Mingei never leaves out a fun hands-on project on Family Sunday, so you can expect to be creative by making an original animal-inspired art project with artist Lisa Alvarez throughout the afternoon!

Save The Date!

Family Sunday will take place from Noon-4pm on Sunday, May 19th, 2013. We’ve truly enjoyed the ones we’ve attended, and you can’t beat the price! It’s a great deal, and they always have fun activities for the little ones. This month sounds exceptionally fun, and just what our kids are into: Animals, Storytime, & Hands-On Art Projects! Perhaps we’ll see you there!

African Shaker AKA "Shekere"

Mingei International Museum, located in the Balboa Park area of San Diego, conducts a fun Family Sunday the third Sunday of each month. Mingei’s Family Sunday offers discount admission, of only $5 per family, or $3 for individuals from Noon – 4pm. Attendees can explore the museum’s colorful exhibitions of folk art, craft and design, win a prize for completing a treasure hunt as well as participate in other activities such as storytelling and hands-on crafts.

The upcoming Family Sunday, on April 15th, 2012, will feature African style shakers (Shekeres) (pronounced SHAY-ker-ray), led by Ruth and Martin Japtok. Create your own shekere out of a California-grown gourd. Add shells, beads, rice or beans to a gourd to produce a shekere. If time allows, some may have a chance to decorate their gourds or to personalize them before turning them into a simple, fun-to-play traditional African instrument.

Shekeres are played in several parts of the world. In some parts of Africa they play a major role in music and are a great accompaniment to several dances. Today, shekeres are used by world music performers all over the globe. Ruth, the woman leading the shekere making, recently opened an African/International Arts & Crafts, Jewelry & Home Decor boutique on Adams Avenue in Normal Heights. Click HERE to visit her website.
