Week 10: Rainbow of Humanity

I recently completed three Visiting Artist in the Classroom projects in Oakland Public Schools. (Thank you, Philanthropic Ventures Foundation, for the funding!) All of them involved working in clay. The middle school kids made tiles that are now part of the in-progress mosaic mural at Bret Harte. The kindergarteners and first graders made self-portraits which we strung as ornaments, and that's our show for today. It's a larger collection than my usual 7 or 8 photos, because it was too hard to narrow down the choices. Sit back and relax... You're going to enjoy this display of human diversity!
