Northbrook District 28 Superintendent Dr. Jason Pearson talks with adults and students involved in the Northbrook Junior High  Community Art Club. NBJH art teacher Mark Hay collaborated with art therapist Mignon Dupepe of Twist Out Cancer to develop and lead a non-clinical after-school experience that emphasizes empathy, love, connection, healing and rebuilding community in a post-COVID year. The club met six times and included both students and staff who created a mosaic that will be on display digitally as part of Brushes With Cancer Midwest Art Exhibition throughout November at the WNDR Museum in Chicago. Hear from Mark Hay, Dr. Scott Meek, NBJH Principal, parent Joe Lombardo, who initiated the idea, Mignon DuPepe as well as teachers and students about this inspiring, healing project.  Visit Northbrook28.net to see a photo of the mosaic or stop by the hallway connecting the gym to the main lobby at Northbrook Junior High.More about Northbrook District 28Northbrook28.net; Facebook, InstagramContact UsHave a suggestion or comment about our podcast?
