MLK Jr. Day Art Project

Join us in celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a special art activity event designed for elementary-aged kids at the Gordon JCC Madeline Pargh Arts and Crafts Center on Monday, January 15th, from 9:30 to 11:30am. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr is an inspiring example of the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, (repairing the world.) Dr. King dedicated his life to help create a more equitable world for generations to follow. 


We invite families to participate in a story time session that emphasizes the values of Tikkun Olam, courage, compassion, and unity championed by Dr. King. Following the story, children will immerse themselves in hands-on arts and crafts, crafting meaningful projects reflecting principles of equality and justice.   


This event is a unique opportunity for families to unite, contemplate MLK Jr.'s impactful words, and cultivate understanding and empathy through the joy of creativity. Join us to celebrate the enduring legacy of this remarkable leader and co-create dreams of unity! Additionally, your child's artwork will have the chance to be exhibited in the galleries at the Gordon JCC after completion.
