“What I See When I Look at Me” Workshop at MassMu
Ke’Aunte Harris, executive director and founder of BeYoutiful Weirdo, will present a workshop focusing on self-image and identity entitled “What I See When I Look at Me,” at the Massillon Museum on Saturday, April 15, from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. Participants will create self-portraits in the form of magazine covers.
The workshop is free and open to everyone but geared toward students in third grade or older. Register at MassMu.org/Tickets or call 330-833-4061.
BeYoutiful Weirdo’s community-based mission is to elevate girls of all nationalities to reach their highest potential by building confidence, honing leadership skills, and supporting goal attainment. Its vision is to meet educational, social, emotional, and recreational needs of young girls.
The workshop complements MassMu’s NEA Big Read selection, Interior Chinatown by Charles Yu. NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Complimentary copies of the book will be offered as long as the supply lasts. Learn more at MassMu.org/BigRead.
Participants can view all Museum galleries, but may be particularly interested in the Accessible Expressions Ohio exhibition in the Aultman Health Foundation Gallery and the Finding Identity: Heritage as Inspiration exhibition in the Fred F. Silk Community Room Gallery and Flex Gallery, which are also part of the NEA Big Read.
The Massillon Museum is grateful for operating support from the Ohio Arts Council, ArtsinStark, and the citizens of Massillon. This workshop is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
