Colorful Education

The media that I chose in this work of art was colored pencils and markers. 

My work of art shows the importance of learning and getting an education in all countries of the world.  Many children don’t receive a good education and I believe that everyone deserves an equal chance to do his or her part for the world. 

On my hexagon I drew flags of all different countries of the world in the background because kids in all places deserve to get an education.  I also drew all different school supplies that children all over the world should be able to use to help their learning experience.  

Universal Ambition

The media that I chose for this work of art was paint and Sharpie markers.

My work of art shows the inspiration of finding a solution to the global issue of world education.     People can help with this problem by raising money, donating school supplies, providing teachers in new schools, and traveling to countries in need to build strong schools.  This will help children all over the world receive a good education.  

On my hexagon I drew school supplies that hopefully one day children all over the globe will be able to use once education spreads to every part of the world.  I also drew flags to represent the each country that deserves to learn.  Finally I wrote inspirational words that make people want to help with this world issue, including educate, world, children, potential, school, learn, and important.

I like how the background is filled with different flags. It makes the picture very colorful.

    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.
