Cricut maker Meleah Campbell creates DIY canvas art to celebrate Black History Month.


Black History Month is a special time where we celebrate and recognize black people who have made significant impacts throughout American history. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most famous civil rights leaders and activists in history. He is well known for his approach of peaceful protests and his “I Have a Dream” speech.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of my personal heroes because he encouraged people to love each other and encouraged peace. As an educator, I use Dr. King as an example when teaching children about the importance of equality and the importance of being kind to all people. To celebrate the life of Dr. King, I created two canvases by using Cricut supplies and designs in Cricut Design Space. The first canvas features a famous quote by Dr. King, “I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” and the second canvas is a silhouette of Dr. King.

I hope you all enjoyed learning about how to create canvas art to celebrate Black History Month. I would like to remind everyone who is reading this about the legacy that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. left behind.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
