Touchstones February Update

A FREE Lesson for Black History Month, a Valentine's Discount, and more!


Celebrating Black History Month

We’re celebrating Black History Month with Loïs Mailou Jones’ painting, A Shady Nook! 

This FREE Touchstones lesson – appropriate for grades 5-12 – helps your students examine the work and perspective of a Black artist, while building visual literacy, communication, and collaboration skills. It includes not only a discussion on the artwork, but also an excerpt from an interview with Jones.
