This is a virtual event.

HOME Multilingual Story Time features children’s books written or illustrated by authors, illustrators, and artists who have faced forced displacement as refugees, asylum seekers, or immigrants, and come from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. Designed for children aged 4-8, we believe that reading picture books is a way to share and discuss big ideas with young children. We end each virtual session with an art activity from Lynden art educator Claudia Orjuela. Follow-up activities will be available for download.

Scheduled to screen every third Wednesday of the month, HOME Multilingual Story Time is a collaboration with the Milwaukee Public Library, the Islamic Resource Center, Hanan Refugee Relief Group, Alliance Française de Milwaukee, Milwaukee African Women's Association, Milwaukee African Women's Association, and Milwaukee Taiko Group Hibiki. Videos remain on view once they are posted, and can be accessed at any time

Lynden Art Club

Art club is a community of young artists who are independent in their art practice but value a place to exchange ideas and support and learn from one another. Students will design a long-term independent art project at the beginning of the session and meet for in-progress reviews, take part in creative art challenges, have conversations about contemporary artists and discuss their work with Lynden educators and their peers. Students will present their work at our final art club meeting. Art Club will meet indoors in the studio at Lynden, masked and socially distanced.

In-person safety precautions:
Masks are required indoors (optional outdoors) for adults and children ages 2 and up. To view our Guidelines for Parent-and-Child, Youth Workshops, click here.
