Honoring memory coloring and collage activity

The Skirball Cultural Center invited me to host a workshop in honor of Memory. 
 
The workshop explored how color, collage, and mixed media can be used as tools to evoke memory, strengthen emotional well-being, and boost self-expression.

You too can participate and share this activity with your students and friends by visiting the Skirball’s Educational Resources for Teachers website.
