Great Art Lessons for the Creative Soul
Happy 2020!!! We are thankful and excited about this new year. As we approach the day of commemoration for one of our great leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King, we want to share a simple. yet colorful art lesson inspired by his life. It's no secret that one of favorite author/illustrators is Vanessa Brantley-Newton. Her lovely book entitled, Let Freedom Sing, also helped to inspire our newest art resource.
Throughout the beautifully illustrated book, which highlights several of the pivotal events in the Civil Rights movement, Newton includes the lyrics to the song, This Little Light of Mine. Reading this book to young artists is a great way to introduce them to this important period in American history. After reading, the book, they will enjoy doing our MLK Shine Your Light Art Lesson.
We used DIY stamps made out of foam sheets and letters. How do you honor Dr. King in your creative space? Share by commenting below.
