WJ Bryan’s 5th Graders Get Creative

As a part of our Museums Magnet Partnership, Women on the Rise! worked with the 5th grade students at WJ Bryan Elementary School in North Miami throughout November and December. The girls questioned the relationship between our bodies and nature while studying the work of Wangechi Mutu and Chiho Aoshima.

The girls learned about collaging using found images from magazines during the Mutu workshop.  While working, the girls discussed the connections between the body and landscape as well as the objectification of people and cultures in the media.

While looking at the work of Chiho Aoshima, the girls at WJ Bryan learned about Superflat Style and imagined themselves as a part of their favorite landscapes.

The girls look forward to visiting the museum in April for the exhibition, Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey.
