Let us create Icons of Peace and Equality around the world made by young people. https://artclassroomproject.wordpress.com/
In a time when there is so much unrest in the world, students have been involved in making portraits representing the ethical, the good, the positive, and of unwavering tolerance reminding all who see the works that people can indeed still make a difference. Academically, it is important to demonstrate to students that art does not exist in isolation but draws from all disciplines and subject matter throughout their curriculum.
By having students work together to produce each individual portrait, they have symbolically, albeit in a small way, been participating in something positive and progressive, reaffirming the fact that people with a shared view can all be actively involved in positive change.
