Your Cultural Kaleidescope Program sounds amazing-- I am an Artist in Residence in Missoula, MT at a school and while looking for lessons on kaleidescopes, came across this fascinating cultural program. Thank you for sharing the lesson plans and the successes with the larger community. IAm taking inspiration on how I can make a culturally relevant program in my area!
