“Pollution”

I used colored pencils and pastel chalk to make this piece of artwork.

Pollution does some real damage,
  In such a short time we can’t even manage.
  There are two ways our Earth can appear,
  So lets keep it pretty, and have no fear!
  Pollution, to me, is a worldwide issue,
  Just waiting to be fixed,
  Believe me, pollution. We won’t miss you!

I like how you showed the world without pollution and how it looks with pollution.

The artwork really helps to make us feel the problem and how it can be different if we try. I love the poem.

I really liked how you showed the contrast between the polluted and the non-polluted areas. It looks really cool. Good 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.
