SATURDAY:  Sketch Black History Month


Thanks to  Katje Lehrman for the idea and research for this week's virtual sketch

There's no American History without Black History

It began as a way of remembering important people and events in the history of the African diaspora. It is celebrated in February in the United States and Canada, while in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom it is observed in October.

The most important purpose of Black History Month is to make us all aware of the struggle for freedom and equal opportunity. It is a time to celebrate the many achievements of African Americans in every field from science and the arts to politics and religion.

It is a rich subject with loads of visual reference materials to feed your creativity.  Our creative day will be divided into two parts:

Our Morning Sketch:  Use materials and events that focus on the time before your birth.

Our Afternoon Sketch:  Will focus on the times and events that occurred during your lifetime.
