Summer Studio: Signs of Protest inspired by Cauleen Smith for kids ages 11–13 

Wed, July 8, 2020
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

For 11–13 year olds

Join Whitney educators for free weekly online art classes this summer. Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials. 

The artist Cauleen Smith creates works of art that speak out against injustices such as racism and police brutality. Smith designs her large, hand-sewn banners to either hang from the ceiling or to be carried in processions as a means of inspiring change. She says, “I think that art might be the only thing at this point . . . The only thing that could create conversation and dialogue or reconciliation or mediation.”
