Picture
As you can see my picture is of 2 rhinos. But these are special rhinos they are black rhinos. Which are endangered and are being poached. The global significance of this is they are being poached mostly for their horns and are endangered. This is bad because they are a part of the ecosystem and also shouldn’t be killed for that. I used blended pencil because it looks kind of sad which this problem is. Also the rhino is black colored so if I used color there wouldn’t be much color anyway.

    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.
