WOM’S KIDS was created by Gwahara Almuflihi from West Oakland Middle School (WOMS). Gwahara’s plane is flying over Oakland. He said it was a symbol of optimism, and that each cloud represents a student from his 6th grade class. Gwahara and his classmates are enrolled in ArtEsteem, the award-winning art program from Attitudinal Healing Connection (AHC). ArtEsteem classes encourage students to see themselves as positive change-makers in a dynamic relationship to others and their community. AHC’s services continue to grow and evolve during the Covid-19 pandemic. Their team of professional teaching artists currently provide remote visual and cultural art classes in grades K-12.
