Stop Abusing the heart.

Sharpies and Paint.

            This hexagon represents stopping violence. Violence takes more than 1.5 million people a year, 50% due to suicide,35% due to homicide, and 12% as a result of war or conflict. This is important to me because I feel that it s unnecessary for people to use violence especially when taking live. The heart represents abused people.

I really like the colors in this project. I think this represents child abuse completely.

    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.
