Summer Fun!

2018-19 theme is JOURNEY!
To help spark your curiosity and wonder, the foundations of creativity, we're going to look at the idea of Journey through the often ignored or silenced female artist voices throughout history.  The feminist art movement began in the 1970's in order to produce art that represented the lives and experiences of women, change the contemporary exhibition practices, as well as to bring attention to women in art history and in contemporary practice.  According to "Frida Kahlo" one of the founding members of the Guerrilla Girls, a group of feminist activist artists founded in the 1980's that believes in an intersectional feminism that fights discrimination and supports human rights for all people and all genders, in a 2015 interview with The New York Times, "Culture is the story of everyone. And how can you really tell the story of a culture when you really don't include all the voices within the culture.  Otherwise, it's just the history and story of power."
