  • Carson Ellis & Martin Luther King Jr. Student Book Collaboration

    Introduction to Galactic Alienology is a collaborative project by artist Carson Ellis and her son, Hank Meloy.

    The work was produced through a process of having Hank describe a set of imagined space aliens and Carson then illustrating them. This catalog was created as an accompaniment to an exhibition of 
    that work at King School Museum of Contemporary Art (KSMoCA). The exhibit at KSMoCA included 
    the original illustrations created by Carson and Hank, 
    as well as drawings and texts from a workshop with MLK Jr. students led by Carson and assisted by Portland State University students. As part of the workshop Ms. Johnson's 5th Grade class and Ms. Kahn's 2nd/3rd blend class re-enacted Carson and Hank's description/drawing collaborative process 
    to produce their own set of imagined alien illustrations.

  • Welcome to Martin Luther King Jr. School!  We are a school with a strong history and a bright future.  Our PK-8th grade students represent the future of this great city and we are proud to have many local partners supporting us.  As an International Baccalaureate authorized school, we seek to provide inquiry based, thematic learning for our students.  Integrated arts is also at the heart of our work. These experiences serve to bring the content alive!  Please visit the Integrated Arts page for more information about our partners.  Finally, we are a Mandarin Immersion school, providing Mandarin language instruction in a 50/50 model.  We art partnered with the Albina Head Start program where many of our students receive Mandarin instruction during their Pre-K experience.


    Our Mission:

    Martin Luther King, Jr. School believes in the unlimited potential of everyone in our diverse community.  We believe that a caring well-balanced student will be motivated to become a global citizen who is inspired to take action.
