What to Expect
Tamekia Swint and her team at Styles4Kidz invite everyone to a BIPOC Visual Poetry Session.
Celebrate the rich tapestry of Native American heritage this November as we delve into the vibrant world of visual poetry. In honor of Native American Heritage Month, join us for an inspiring session guided by Ann Viernes of Purple Sun Arts, where the art of words intertwines with captivating imagery.

This event is a unique opportunity to not only celebrate the diversity and resilience of Native American heritage but also to connect with one another on a deeper level. Ann Viernes will lead us through a transformative experience, weaving together words and visuals that echo the traditions and stories passed down through generations.
Join us in honoring Native American Heritage Month through the power of visual poetry, a medium that transcends language barriers and fosters a sense of unity.
