Students in sixth through 12th grades are invited to learn about the ancient art of henna, also known as Mehndi! Mehndi is a form of body art from ancient India, in which decorative designs are created on a person's body, using a paste, created from the powdered dry leaves of the henna plant.
Ren Tipton, owner of Many Splendored, specializes in henna art, creative face painting, and body art. She will teach students about henna and then they will have the opportunity to receive henna tattoos. The henna artist offers traditional and contemporary styles and colors including traditional red/brown, black, orange, and blue.
The tattoos are temporary, but may last up to eight to 10 days. A permission form signed by a parent or guardian will be required to participate in this workshop. The permission slips will be available July 13 in the Teen Room.
