  Help the starving children

The issue I looked into  is starving people. They don’t have enough food to live or a great enough supply of water. People around the world are trying to get those who are starving food and water so they can have a healthy and better life style. This is important to me because I really wonder what the people feel in Zimbabwe, Malawi, Ethiopia, Angola, and Sudan who do not have enough food to live. I wanna help these people out.

In my work of art I used pictures from the Internet.  I chose to use this media to illustrate my idea because I found good pictures to use that would relate to my topic.  The picture I used to symbolize my issue is starving children. A picture of starving children is reaching for a peace of bread to symbolize that they want food really bad.

I think you did a good job because you showed the people suffering and where this occurs most.

    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.
