Social Media is powerful for all of us these days.  How can we mobilize it as artists to reach new audience with the messages we care passionately for and are committed to acting toward.  It begins with awareness.  The seventh and eighth grade works below were exhibited at school and then then posted to the social media sites of the kids' choices.  Many started blogs, some used Instagram, and other SnapChat.


In our upcoming unit, students will take time to know someone from the daily life better. She's not, just the lady who cuts pineapples for your breakfast each day.  What's her story and why should she share it with you?  How can art help us know someone better and build respect and understanding?

Artists, who do you want to know better?  How can your art help others know them too and show gratitude for the role they play in your life? What values do you share?
