Students were tasked with creating a poster that illustrated Peace in the future. I allowed the students to use any supplies as look as they were not taped on or 3D. If you turned in an artwork with tape or 3D pieces to it then they would disqualify it.
The students were to research peace and what they thought it would look like in the future. They input their ideas into a google doc and then began to brainstorm their final product. I aided the students in this but I also let them work through their ideas to find one they were happy with. We then discussed how to choose supplies for a project. We discussed the pros and cons of different supplies and everyone began to lay out their final. After that the students worked independently. If they were wanting to spray paint or take photos for their project then they signed up for specific days.
This was the first time I had students create a project for a competition like this and the students really pushed the envelop. Their artworks were original, inspiring and full of love.
The above photo is of the artwork we submitted. The student took a photo of their hand shaking another students hand. She used watercolor colored pencils to create the rainbow stripes in the hands. She then traced the photo of the hands on to card stock. The image was cut out and spray painted on top of the colors. Tiffany you did a Great Job!
Here is a quick essay she wrote to submit with her artwork:
