The Summer Child Art Class is an educational program associated with The Harmon and Harriet Kelley Collection of African American Art: Works on Paper, a special exhibition that features 19th, 20th, and 21st century Black artists. Showcased are intimate drawings, turn-of-the-century watercolors, pastels, bright abstract acrylics, gouaches, and mixed media works. Etchings, lithographs, linoleum cuts, and silkscreens represent artists who worked from the early 20th century to our days.
