Arts Workshops for Southwest Detroit Caregivers


We’ve partnered with Congress of Communities, Detroit Hispanic Development Corporation, and Mathematica to present a series of workshops for caregivers who provides care or babysitting to pre-school youth ages 0-5 in Southwest Detroit communities.

The first installment of the series was held on July 27th at the Ford Resource and Engagement Center. Teaching artists Karilu Forcee-Alarcon and Alesha Brown led participants in creative play activities that help to support early learning and kindergarten readiness in our youngest learners.

Ten participants (including caregivers and children) used books, toys, costumes, DIY instruments, and song and dance for the workshops. These creative arts activities create a brain boost for the youth and center developmentally appropriate learning styles.

The next installment of the series will be held on August 31st.
