February is Black History Month, but in the Hedke artroom we talk about embracing diversity all year long!
Some current projects that we have going that teach the acceptance of others and futhering our understanding of others include:
All hands In - A project that symbolizes the fact that no matter what our race, heritage, background, lifestyle, dress, etc., etc , etc., we are all one TEAM.
Jacob Lawrence Collages - A collage that shows how community impacts our lives. We look at African-American painter Jacob Lawerence's work, read a book he has illustrated and find out about the meaning of his community inspired artworks. We then create a community inspired collage of our own.
