Commemorate a monumental moment in Black History with this fun workshop, perfect for families!
Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. This national holiday uplifts African American freedom and emphasizes education and the many achievements of Black people.

For this special Family First workshop, we find inspiration from Sonia Lynn Sadler’s Juneteenth at Oak Bluff. Recreate a seen of a vibrant Juneteeth celebration with your own twist! This colorful, mixed media piece will require the following items:

White construction or drawing paper
A white crayon
A watercolor set
Paint brush
Cup of water
Glitter crayons and/or glitter glue in various colors
No problem if you don’t have all of the items mentioned above! What you have at home will be more than enough to create a special work of art. All backgrounds, ages and experience levels are welcome.
