Kid's art with Wren Avenue Elementary School

Project sample inspired by the work of Helen Hardin

We are so happy to be working with Wren Avenue Elementary again this year! Last year we focused on making crafts and DIY gifts. This year we have selected a group of contemporary American BIPOC artists whose work will provide inspiration for monthly art projects.
