The name of my artwork is “Feeding The Hungry”. I used pictures from the Internet, colorful markers and paper. World hunger is a very big problem. Lots of kids have no food of even water. This project was important to me because I want to show how big of a problem it really is. The pictures I used show kids starving for food. In one picture it shows them finally being fed. I tried to use lots of colors because to me it’s a symbol for hope.

Good job helping us feel the darkness and confusion of being hungry. You did a great job!

    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.
