"Why"
Child abuse happens all over the world. Mostly in the U.S, Canada, and Australia. This is so sad. I hope my artwork can shed some light on this horrible subject. It is a terrible thing to think about, so by doing this project I want more and more people know about this world issue.
The media i used was watercolors and oil pastels. I used this because they are soft and pure just like a child. Children should not be abused.

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
