Course overview
Long before Europeans colonized Africa, body art was in existence. In this course, I will discuss the brief history of African body art and what it means to Africans. We will also explore the commercial side of the art.

This course comes with a Certificate of Completion signed by the DG-SMEDAN, which can form part of your Business Documentation that can create more opportunities for your business. The Certificate can also be shared on Linkedin or Facebook or Twitter directly from your dashboard.   

In this course, we will learn different African motifs, how to make designs using lines and patterns. We will cover how to shoot your art work from start to finish, editing of the videos, and most beneficially,  knowledge of monetizing the skill of African body art owing to the fact that very few artists know about the African body art.

It has the power to tell beautiful stories on your body even without speaking and it requires only a good artist to tell good stories.

I am a fine artist, specialized in body art. In this course, my intention is to teach you about body art and the business side to this skill.  My motto is ''Body art is not merely about painting the body in a decorative way. It is a means of sharing messages, distinguishing people and beautifying the body.''
