Kid's art with Wren Avenue Elementary School

Instructor project sample for May

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