Welcome to the Come As You Are Kit!

How do we discover ways to feel brave in a space and be our own true selves? How do we work on ways to be allies to marginalized groups of people? Do we judge others based on looks and sometimes on our own prejudice? These are important questions to ask ourselves as we move throughout our daily life.

Come As You Are is an art kit with an emphasis on self-expression and self-identity. This tour celebrates and promotes that self-identity by examining art created by two unique artists: Kehinde Wiley and Cobi Moules. Join Museum Educator Nancy Verlage and guest artist Jessica Smith as they guide students to discover these pieces of art and create their own works of art with watercolors and colored pencils.
