The MOAD Paintbox 2019: Home is Where the Heart Is

Read, Imagine, and Create!  The Museum of Art and Design at Miami Dade College invites young readers to create unique pieces of art inspired by five delightfully poignant children’s books. Through activity prompts designed to spark their imagination, children will thoughtfully engage with award-winning stories that explore important concepts such as home, empathy, and belonging. 
Featured Books: La Frontera (written by Deborah Mills and Alfredo Alva, illustrated by Claudia Navarro),
Stepping Stones: A Refugee Family's Journey (written by Margriet Ruurs, translated by Falah Raheem, illustrated by Nizar Ali Badr), Dreamers (written and illustrated by Yuyi Morales), A Different Pond (written by Bao Phi, illustrated by Thi Bui), Her Right Foot (written by Dave Eggers, illustrated by Shawn Harris).
