Session 2: Building Community
Facilitators: Jennifer Bloomer and Shelley Kuang. In this session, families will get a chance to work together to create art for the community. Participants will explore and identify the values they will hold and ground themselves in the work of becoming an antiracist family. Families will work together to create a poster that specifically addresses issues in their community. The session will gather inspiration from DeYoung's collection of political posters, and explore the art of crafting a powerful message and accompanying image.
Join Fine Arts Museums in this three-part series exploring what it means to become an anti-racist family. Inclusivity is central to our teaching practices as we host families from the Bay Area to engage with objects from across the globe. We offer this series of family art making sessions and discussions to explore the question together: “What does it mean to become an antiracist family?” We are grateful to offer this series in partnership with Be the Change Consulting and Radici Studios.
