CLASS SPOTLIGHT

In their most recent unit, Washington Global seventh graders have been learning about the Harlem Renaissance and how the artists involved in the movement used their voices to express themselves through their art. Throughout this unit, the students learned to use their own voices to speak up and make change, like when they wrote letters to the local art gallery MuralsDC, urging the organization to create a mural based on the Harlem Renaissance.

To conclude the unit, DC artist Demont Peekaso Pinder came to Washington Global to speak with our seventh graders about the process of making murals and art, self-expression, and the power of using your voice. Mr. Pinder even has a special connection with Washington Global -- he painted the mural in our cafeteria!

The scholars had a blast meeting with Mr. Pinder. They asked him thoughtful questions about his experience as an artist, wrote "Thank You" notes, and even got autographs! We hope we will be able to welcome Mr. Pinder back to Washington Global again!
