Unfortunately, due to low enrollment, we are canceling our Homage to a Hero: Ruby Bridges. We look forward to seeing you at our future art programs!

In 1960, at the age of 6, Ruby Bridges was the first African American girl to desegregate an elementary school in New Orleans. A lifelong activist for racial equality, in 1999, Ruby established The Ruby Bridges Foundation to promote tolerance and create change through education. BREC Art celebrates this brave young girl who grew to be a passionate maker of change. Students will paint an impressionistic portrait of the young Ruby Bridges using acrylic on canvas.
