We all have our story to tell, so let’s be sure to tell it! In this week’s class, participants will work with 2-D and 3-D media to share their own Mississippi story while learning about notable Mississippi artists in Picturing Mississippi. Together, this class will celebrate identity and have a space to share their own Mississippi narrative. Participants may bring a sack lunch or purchase lunch boxes through the registration link.
