With Museum educators, homeschoolers will look at works included in NEW/NOW: Francisca Benítez, exploring the differences between American Sign Language (ASL) poetry and spoken poetry. Because communication is largely visual for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, ASL rhyming occurs with handshapes rather than the words they are representing. After studying works in the exhibition, participants will practice ASL poetry in groups in the studio.
