HISTORY OF THE SIMPLE GOOD ART ACTIVITY BOOK BELOW:The first Simple Good SEL-based Art Activity Book (2020 launch) is a beautiful tool of hope that emerged during the pandemic as we realized that many of our communities did not have access to the internet to participate in our virtual programs. In response to the drastic inequities in mental health and education access in Chicago, we collaborated with artists from around the world to create a physical book with our SEL and Mindfulness-based curriculum. Within the first year of publishing we received 3,000 book requests from schools across Chicago. Today, The Simple Good's SEL-Based Art Activity Books (2020) continues to be used in the classrooms and by adults alike!

More Information on the TSG Art Activity Book below:

Since the COVID-19 Pandemic hit our communities, it has exacerbated inequities that have always existed in Chicago. As schools began shutting down and curriculum quickly shifted online, unequal access to internet and technology became a drastic problem, leaving over one-third of students with no access to education or mental health support in low-income communities.

In addition, the pandemic has intensified the mental health crisis which will affect generations to come. In response to this crisis, TSG developed our first Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Based Art Activity Book to support the well-being and mental health of our youth without internet access.

The TSG Art Activity Book synthesizes TSG's SEL-Based Art Curriculum into a printed Art Activity & Coloring Book focused on developing a student's understanding of what the 'simple good' means to them through influences of artists from all around the world. The students will take a journey of identifying positivity in their lives and their communities, developing an understanding of how they can use their 'simple goods' to change the world. The book will feature pages from incredible artists from all over the globe including Alice Pasquini (Italy), Oak Oak (France), Stinkfish (Colombia), Ivan Vazquez (Chicago), Richard Colman (San Francisco) and more!

TSG x Dwight White: Embrace Change

Regular price $35.00

Ever since his studies of Sociology and human behavior, White has been inspired by the ways in which one can capture truth visually. He loves the challenge of taking the consumer beyond just seeing the art - he believes they should feel it. His voice is profound and thoughts are intellectual, providing a path to follow for young people of the next generation. His confidence and commitment to his craft is inspiring as he embraces his function in society to document the history of connected experiences through art. 

As a young boy, the thought of mastering various artistic practices fascinated him but he never truly immersed himself in visual art. White grew up in an athletic home - with both of his parents being collegiate athletes, it made sense he would aim to excel in that arena as well. His talent and commitment to athletics took him to the Chicagoland area where he took the football field for Northwestern University as a defensive back. In his Junior season, that came to a sudden end due to a medical retirement. The door to achieve in athletics closing is what allowed White embark on his creative journey in fine arts. The former Texas football recruit was brought to Chicago to be “Reborn” an artist. 

The impressive creations to which he gives life on the canvas are symbolic of true empowerment, often centered around his heritage as a young African American male. In White’s world of painting, there are elements and experiences that relate to everyone such as one of his favorite concepts, there being “beauty in the struggle.” However, as he’s evolved as an artist, White has found unique ways to not only empower those who are subjects of his work, but also spark immediate thought and emotion through visual storytelling. White’s paintings live in both small and large scales depending on which audiences he aims to reach. With both gallery wrapped executions and murals, he engages his consumers at different touch points so he can connect with both the contemporary and street art community. The versatility is what many of White’s followers find the most fascinating. 

To leave a lasting impression on his viewers, he uses bold primary hues that typically contrast the human subject. The palette strokes of either oils or acrylics provides a unique balance to his creations, allowing the artist to take a traditional fine painting approach and enhance it by introducing textures and abstract elements of typography to the canvas. White finds his inspiration on the energy of human experiences through the lens in which he sees the world. His love for consumer insights and understanding the depths of his subjects allows the work to embody a truth to create a cultural experience. The art exists for White’s mental wellness and happiness on his evolving journey. He aims to spread love and knowledge rooted in empathy and empowerment of the people. 

My simple good is change, because change can be good and you can learn from it in a positive way. My simple good was inspired by the changes that I have been through that have made me a better person and friend. I depicted my simple good in my work by taking a photo of a little girl, who will eventually change into a grown woman. I plan on using the meaning of my simple good to inspire my community to make changes even if they are scared, and showing them that change can be good. This is important to me because change is necessary for growth, and for life.

My simple good is embracing my melanin because it’s really hard be a dark skinned woman in society nowadays. My simple good was inspired by seeing women on social media trying to change themselves. I depicted my simple good in my artwork by drawing beautiful black queens who know that their melanin is popping no matter what shape or size they are. I plan on using my meaning of the simple good to improve my community and change the world by bringing women together. So many women bring each other down on social media. We need to start empowering and appreciating each other.

"My ‘simple good’ is BLM.  I choose this simple good because this is happening a lot to repeating BLM and is not right because we need to respect people who are different colors. My ‘simple good’ was inspired to respect people with dark skin. I depicted my ‘simple good’ in my artwork by going like some people saying BLM.  I plan on using my meaning of the ‘simple good’ to improve my community and change the world by showing people the BLM.  This is important to me because I feel bad that people are not respecting Black people. THANK YOU! A simple good question I would ask others is: Why do they have to be rude to Black people?"
