Here is a link to a video about the purpose of art as a driving force behind this project.
The purpose of this lesson was for students to think about the power of their voice. I began the lesson by writing the statement, "Kids have nothing important to say!" The point of this statement was to get the students to create from a place of passion and not compliance. We looked at several examples of artists who use their art as a catalyst for change. Over the course of several weeks, we engaged in activities and discussions to help students find their voice and learn to be a change-maker!
