The Meadowbrook School has been celebrating and learning about black authors’, artists’, teachers’, scientists’ and mathematicians’ contributions to society in a little more depth throughout February. Classrooms are filled with different projects. In the art program, the students learned about black artists, Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, Horace Pippin, Alma Thomas, and Kehinde Wiley, and created their own works honoring their style of art.
Interested students, teachers, and parents can walk through the Goldsmith Greenfield Gallery to appreciate the art lent to us by the Moodyjones Gallery.
Thank you to @ moodyjonesgallery for lending us these pieces made by talented black artists to help us celebrate Black History Month!
These two particular pieces were painted by Philadelphia-born artist, R.L. Washington. Learn more about him and other artists in our art wing! Each artist’s bio is available. @ The Meadowbrook School
