North Carolina and Me: Student Art from the Newcomers School

Theodore, Patricio, José, Characters in a Setting

April 13–July 27, 2014

East Building, Studio 3

Elementary students from Doris Henderson Newcomers School, a public school for newly arrived immigrants and refugees in Guilford County, are discussing, writing about, and making art to build literacy skills. Newcomers teachers partnered with the Museum to use NCMA works of art, art integration strategies, and collaborative planning in their classes. The exhibition features student art, writing, and video.

Art of Collaboration at the Doris Henderson Newcomers School is made possible by the support of the W. Trent Ragland Jr. Foundation. This exhibition is supported by the Duke Energy Education Endowment Fund.
