HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

This activity aids us in getting a sense of issues that are impacting communities beyond our own. We hope this encourages others to be called to act on behalf of these issues. 

DESCRIPTION

Our quilt block workshops are designed for individuals to critique their local and larger communities through art. These quilt blocks are then combined into community quilts that go on exhibit in museums and community centers. Participants of this workshop will engage in the pre-fabric design process. 


ITEMS NEEDED

  • Printer paper 
  • Crayons/markers/colored pencils/pencil
