This Sunday, May 30th during CYRE time, Minister, Eve Stevens and volunteers from our Family Ministry Team will offer programming for families on our grounds at 234.
- Our shared activity will be accessible for ages 3 and up, though we very much welcome families to bring babies and toddlers who may end up having a good time too!
- Rather than separating by age group, families will stay together and mingle with other families during this activity.
- Please wear clothes you do not mind getting a little dirty as we will be elbows deep in non-toxic art supplies.
- The Freeman Hall bathrooms will be available for one at a time (or parent with child) use.
- Playgrounds will be available following our activity!
We’ve created a racial justice activity for all ages based on an article by artist Olivia Gude entitled, “Drawing Color Lines.” The article explores how white, western culture has taught us to communicate through arts and advertising using color. What feelings and images come to our minds when we encounter various colors? How did we come to associate yellow with happiness and blue with sadness and black with bad and white with good?
No art skills are required! We will guide families through two art activities that help us think more creatively about the color spectrum and question the exclusive meanings we’ve been taught to associate with colors.
Following our activity, there will be time to reflect with your own family and other families about what this exploratory experience was like.
