Anti-Racist Art Activities for Kids: 30+ Creative Projects that Celebrate Diversity and Inspire Change by Anti-Racist Art Teachers


This would be a great resource for any teacher or parent who wants to use art as a learning tool for their kids. I'm not going to lie, a few of the initial art projects were pretty ugly and I was worried, but there are some pretty amazing ones later (so if you're flipping through this, don't be alarmed). Some of my favorites were self-portrait collages, encouraging kids to make a 3D mixed media display of their native dish, drawing expressive landscapes (such as a view from their window), or illustrating their favorite/most important day of the year.

Some of these projects would probably be frustrating or difficult for younger kids but there are projects in here that reflect the abilities of virtually every age group, from K all the way up to high school. And it's a great way to touch upon all kinds of subjects, from respect of the elderly to appreciation of native plants to understanding inequality/injustice.

Also I learned the phrase "affirmation animal" as an alternative to spirit animal hehe.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!
