MUSIC AND ART: EXPLORING RESPONSES TO OPPRESSION
We had a great time leading MUSIC AND ART: EXPLORING RESPONSES TO OPPRESSION, an education workshop at The Jewish Museum of Maryland, Baltimore on August 3, 2016
Gail Prensky and Sarah Baumgarten of The Jüdische Kulturbund Project presented and led an education workshop for middle- and high-school teachers at the Jewish Museum of Maryland. The team led discussions and exercises relating to responses to oppression through music and art. In one exercise, the teachers were tasked with creating artwork under various limitations. In some cases, for example, they could not use writing utensils, or the color red, or could not use construction paper. Below are samples of their visual art responses.
It was a fun, inspiring, and enlightening day. Please spread the word--we want to do more workshops and expand our education program!
