Creating Magic Grades 9 – 12

Abby Nowakowski asserts that, “with our tattoos, we can dream up better and more radical futures, where our skin tells stories and casts spells.” The short video and accompanying lesson plan are filled with creative activities to express yourself and create magic.

 Developed and recorded by Jessica Endress, Education Assistant, Special Projects. This video is accompanied by a lesson plan geared towards high school students grades 9–12.

AGNES Learns is a digital resource for children and families. Artworks from the Agnes collection inspire fun ways to explore, understand and get creative.
