Goals

Goals of Segan’s artwork and guest teaching include

  1. Educate youth about hate, anti-Semitism , Islamophobia, xenophobia, bigotry and racism, et al, using art as a universally accessible teaching tool.
  2. Restore dignity to the memory of those murdered by the Nazi’s, their Fascist collaborators, and the silence of millions.
  3. Provide a safe and non-threatening  format for children, parents, teachers, librarians, clergy, therapists and others who work with children & youth through on-line learning, art exhibitions and slide classes.

The Wings series and the Sight-seeing series drawings and mosaic-drawing combos are designed to be accessible to and for children, youth, young adult and adult viewers of all ages.
