The Best Colors: Teaching Diversity Through Art

20120622-234900.jpg

Barbara Taff, a lesbian woman of Jewish faith, created “The Best Colors,” which tackles diversity in a simple way that is accessible to “children up to 100″.

“There is so much prejudice about the color of your skin and other differences,” she said. “It’s like saying a banana is a better fruit than an orange, it’s absurd. It’s more about what we can bring to the table.”

Taff has worked as an artist and graphic designer for years and was influenced by the children’s book “The Dot and The Line,” by Norton Juster, and hoped to bring its simple approach to the difficult of diversity.

“It’s not only an active art lesson, but opens a conversation about diversity,” she says.
