Meet with artist Oaklee Thiele at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum in a workshop designed to help children learn about disabilities in an open dialogue. Children and parents will have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of invisible disability, service dogs, and more! Participants will have the opportunity to write and draw alongside the artist. My Dearest Friends Project recently teamed up with the Grand Rapids Children's Museum (@grcmuseum) to collect stories from children (aged 18 and under) who are part of the disability community. All submissions will be illustrated and shared on the Dearest Friends page. A curated selection of youth submissions will be prominently displayed on the museum's exterior walls. ***Please note the following: *Adults are not permitted to enter the Museum without children. Children under 18 are not permitted in the Museum without adult supervision. Adults are classified as anyone 18 and older. The Museum asks that adults stay with children at all times. *This workshop is included with regular paid admission. Masks are required for everyone ages 2 and up while inside of the museum, regardless of vaccination status. Please visit www.grcm.org for more information.
