Dear Art Educators,

I know many like to do the "Bad Hair Day" lesson idea - portraits with
wild lines and patterns for hair. Here is a contemporary artist
students could learn about for that lesson.

Of course. Laylah Ali's work about much more than hair and headdresses
- much more meaning.

I found out about Laylah Ali on this Middle School web site:

Sparrows Point Middle School in Maryland.
