Tlingit weaver and teacher Lily Hope guides Auke Bay Elementary School second graders through the cultural exhibit in the Walter Soboleff Center on Thursday. The event is part of the Ensuring the Arts for Any Given Child program, which was founded by the Kennedy Center to create full access to arts education programs and resources for K-8 students. The Kennedy Center works with 18 sites in the country and Juneau is one of them. Starting in November, all second-grade students in the Juneau School District will go on annual arts excursions to the Walter Soboleff Building to learn about the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian cultures.
