2016 – My Community, My Point of View

    ArtLink 2015-16 Theme Assignment: For students to give a real insider’s view of what goes on in their communities, neighborhoods, villages, towns or cities. They were asked to consider a variety of day-today interactions between their friends, family members, merchants, classmates, teachers, teammates, elders, clergy, neighbors with disabilities and others.

    In their artwork, the students had to thoughtfully capture a specific interaction to share. This moment might include their families, classmates, friends or community members taking part in an activity that reveals a meaningful cultural value.
