War

The world-wide impact of war is that when war happens only destruction and sadness is left in its wake. There are many charities and government programs that help people who live in war-torn cities. This is important to me because my grandparents came to America from Germany in the late 40’s because they were trying to get away from a destroyed Germany.  

In my hexagon I wanted to show that war only hurts the people where the fighting is taking place, and that war never solves the problem. War only makes the problem worse. I used the Internet to get the pictures and type the words. I also used red and blue markers to color the hexagon. In my pictures I wanted to show that after a war nothing is the same for the people that live there. For the colors I wanted to show that many people don’t realize that war leaves millions homeless, but also that more people are actually finding out that war is bad and they are doing something about it. That’s why there is more red on the hexagon then the blue.

    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.
