Over the last few months, hundreds of elementary students have been participating in HumanEYES. HumanEYES is a program that inspires students to artfully share their stories and reflect upon issues of identity and belonging in their own lives and in the wider world around them.
What would be your wish for yourself? For your family? For your community?
HumanEYES workshops engage young people in a range of activities that keep the learning journey fun. From “Clay and Clay Maker,” that involves sculpting your partner into a piece of art, to games like “Definition Jeopardy,” which introduces students to key concepts to understand and challenge discrimination.
One of the HumanEYES classes created Intergenerational Cookbooks, that feature pictures and recipes from special elders in the students’ lives. We’d like to thank facilitators Ruby Smith Diaz and Neelam Khare in supporting students through this creative process.
Among the stellar team of Artist Facilitators working with the program this year are:
