All Ages of kids can enroll. Parents do not need to stay for the duration of the class. You are welcome to wait in the lobby or return at the conclusion of the class.

Look into small mirrors to draw Self-Portraits inspired by Frida Kahlo. What kinds of objects or people describe you? Through arts education and art making, youth will explore identity, self-awareness, literacy, and geography. Who are you and where are you from?

Literacy Element: Book - Where Do I Live by Neil Chesanow. Poem - ‘Where I’m From’ by George Ella Lyons. The poet uses objects and people to describe where she is from. Fill in the blanks of your own poem to think more deeply about what makes you unique.
