My hexagon portrayed one of the biggest epidemics in the world today.  Terrorism happens in nearly every country.  Whether it is a small thirty soldier rebellion hurting innocent citizens or profound world organization that can wipe out cities if they get hold of nuclear materials or hazardous bombs. The incident of 9/11 is the biggest terrorist attack in U.S. history. Killing over three thousand people, I drew a memorial to 9/11 and the people whose lives were lost along with examples of terrorist groups.

I felt that basic tools like colored pencils and markers were appropriate to portray this issue along with the imagination of the drawer.

I really like the way you drew several pictures/symbols. It is wonderful the way they go together so smoothly. Nice!

    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.
