I think in a time like this, when we’re witnessing so much violence against the Black community, it’s important to also circulate positive Black images. In this collage kit, I wanted to replicate the same vibrancy I see in the Black art I consume, in addition to the same carefree feeling I see in my peers. I thought of us in gardens, being able to achieve full unbridled expression, and also us as art as I collected the images for this collage kit. I hope you feel inspired to make something from this! Don’t forget that Black joy matters too.

We recommend printing these pages out so you can use good old-fashioned scissors and glue to do some arts and crafts. When you're done, send a photo or a scan of your artwork to hello@nearnessproject.com. Happy collaging!
