Taras Hexagon
My hexagon is called the end to poverty. I called it that because it shows people holding hands so that means they’re coming together and the hands in the middle are holding the things that we need to end poverty which are water, food and houses. To make this I used paint I also put rice and a cut up water bottle that I glued on the paper.

I liked how you used real rice and how you cut up a water bottle and put it in the middle of the hexagon! It was really unique and different!

You have used very creative ideas in your work. It makes it very clear that you have given this issue a lot of thought and concern. I liked the use of the rice and the images of the hands.

    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.
