The Long Beach Museum of Art’s Education Staff visited several classrooms in Long Beach Unified School District (LBUSD), asking students to reflect on diversity and friendship. 2nd and 3rd grade students created works of art that showed differences made their friendships stronger. Through the process, students learned that diversity means changing outlooks, being flexible and most of all acceptance of others’ opinions.
The Long Beach Museum of Art wishes to thank the LBUSD students from James A. Garfield, Abraham Lincoln, John C. Fremont and Luther Burbank elementary schools for their participation in this project.
