End Starvation

Markers, Colored Pencils

            Starvation is a big world problem. Every night, 1 in every 7 people go to bed hungry and 1 out of 4 children in developing countries is underweight. Hunger has become the world’s number one health risk. This is a very important topic to me because I am one of those kids that always wants food and I am always eating something. Going just 2 or 3 days without food makes me go crazy. It broke my heart when I found out so many kids go days and even weeks without food when I have an endless supply of it.

            In my hexagon to symbolize hunger I drew children reaching for food. This symbolizes hunger because all these kids want food but it is sadly out of their reach

The hands are really well drawn and I really like how they're reaching out to the food.I also like the detail and color of the grapes. Great 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.
