Love Without Borders for Refugees

This art-making class is modelled upon the workshops that originated with Kayra Martinez in refugee camps in Greece.  Whilst Kayra was working with refugee youth, she developed art-making workshops as an outlet for self-expression and storytelling. This guided process includes painting on canvas and is transferrable to non-refugee school children as a means for discussing migration, immigration, and the refugee crisis. Results include teacher-led classes that exhibit and discuss their artwork with specific regards to the migration process.
