The media I used for my Hexagon is paper. Child abuse is an important issue, because it is happening all over the world. Children are dying everyday. They are our future so they need to be kept safe. This problem is important to me because no one should have to go through that much pain as a child. In my art I used two pictures of abuse victims to show all the mental and physical abuse they go through. Then I added four words that represent how they are feeling. Lastly I added the child abuse awareness ribbon to show that we need to spread awareness.

    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.
