Today is election day!
For the past three weeks, my students have been working on a mixed media collage as a visual means of “casting their vote” for the next president or “taking a stand” on an issue pertinent to this election. I am so proud of ALL of my students for taking this idea and running with it. We have visual interpretations on the economy, education, the war, the environment, gay rights, religion, universal health care, pro choice, pro life, legalizing marijuana, tax reform – it’s all in there….you name it!
Art allows an individual to express and articulate his/her beliefs in visual form. It is powerful; and it doesn’t involve shouting or accusations. View some of my students’ expressions below. Click to enlarge.
