Exploring Activism Through Art
- Grade Level(s): 6,7,8
- Duration: 8 Weeks
Study 3-D, print, and digital art, and apply what you learn to solve a pressing issue.
Exploring Activism Through Art gives learners a chance to select a cause they care deeply about and explore different art forms to further that cause. The cause can be local, national, global, or virtual. Students will learn about print, 3D, and digital art — including sculpture/3D art, found art, collage, photography, photojournalism, video, or traditional visual art. Students will also study the influence of art and media on social causes. Learners can opt to participate in weekly live discussions where they problem-solve social, environmental, or other issues and ignite each other’s creativity.
