Social Justice Art and Book Club

Sussex County educator Lisa Hirkaler, from the Vernon Township School District, was awarded an $8,500 grant to carry out a project to meet the interests of middle school students in this rural community who have asked for more multicultural art and literature, this art and book club will identify and provide more opportunities for students to read and examine art and literature that is age appropriate but also explores different perspectives and provides them with an opportunity to discuss them, create their own art inspired by what they have seen, and visit an art museum. This grant was designated as the Visions Grant for Social Justice.
