"Harness the power of creativity to celebrate your community and change the world with Anti-Racist Art Activities for Kids.

Do you think, "I'm just a kid. What can I do to make a difference?" Be an anti-racist artist! Have fun with 38 creative projects that empower you to use your art, actions, and words to create meaningful change.

Start your anti-racist art-making journey by defining ideas like race, racism, and anti-racism. Dive into six sections, beginning with self-reflection before seeking justice and taking action! Each section's theme includes an array of activity choices, including:

  • Identity - Who you are and what makes you unique.
    • Explore your identity and create a symbol that represents you.
  • Culture - Your way of life and honoring what others value about theirs.
    • Make a textile design inspired by your home and culture.
  • Community - Connecting to people and places.
    • Challenge your implicit biases and discover how to draw diverse people.
  • Empathy - Understanding others and having compassion.
    • Learn the meaning of equity by solving real-world math problems with art.
  • Justice - Making a society that is fair for all.
    • Create a miniature billboard that comments on a social issue.
  • Activism - Creating change and transforming our communities.
    • Mail a postcard to a politician that informs them of what you would like to see change.

Other activities include designing a community mural and organizing people to make a positive change. As you work through the pages and explore the many parts of being an anti-racist artist, you will learn various art-making skills and engage with different materials such as paint, clay, textiles, and recycled materials. At the back, a helpful glossary defines terms that come up in anti-racist discussions, from "activism" to "white supremacy."

This book is just a starting point, and the possibilities are endless. There is no limit to your imagination and your impact!"
