Outdoor Painting Workshops: The famous Tingatinga painting style of Tanzania dates back to the mid-1960’s in the Oyster Bay area in Dar es Salaam, where it was developed by a man called Edward Tingatinga. A self-taught artist, he painted under a baobab tree and became very successful throughout his short career: thus the genre is named after him. Following his departure, Tingatinga‘s students started to teach others and nowadays this kind of painting is Tanzania’s most well-known style of artwork, popular across the art world. Why not learn the basics of Tingatinga right here at Kundayo? We have teamed up with experienced and talented local tutors ready to pass on their techniques to you. Their skills and rich experience will provide you with the chance to learn a wide range of tricks, tips and techniques when it comes to Tingatinga paintings.
