Inspired by the traveling exhibit, Telling a People’s Story, in this seven-week workshop you will use your artistic creativity to tell your story about who you are, your family, and your dreams. Art activities will focus on your name, favorite things, family tree, home, storytelling, self portraits, and more. There will be opportunities to share your creations with others and hear about how these themes are seen in the books from the exhibit.
