This was my first hexagon. It depicted the problem of war. This problem goes under the category of environment because war is not a safe a sustainable place. I used colored pencils, glitter, decorative paper, felt, and styrofoam. The picture shows a fallen soldiers belongings. These are the actual belongings of a soldier I knew that was deported to Afghanistan. He was shot and killed a couple months later. I made this hexagon for him.
In loving memory of LCpl James Bray Stack

    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.
