Express Yourself Studios will host its 10th annual MLK workshop, at which families with kids ages 4–12 can participate in an art project and learn about the Civil Rights Movement. Participants are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item for donation to a local charity, and a portion of the proceeds from the workshop will be donated to Color for Kids.
The first 20 families that pre-register with the inspired reading for the day “My Daddy, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr,” written by Martin Luther King, III.
Special guest readings by Maplewood Township and resident representatives (on the hour):
11:00 AM – Mayor Victor DeLuca
12:00 PM – Mrs. Erin Scherzer Board of Trustee Member - South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race
1:00 PM – TBA
Additionally, all participants will contribute to a larger, community canvas to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the “Celebrate Dr. King: Explore the Dream Through Art" Workshop. The community canvas will be displayed at the Maplewood Library (Main Branch) in February.
