2019 – Heritage

    ArtLink 2018-19 Theme Assignment: We asked ArtLink students around the world to consider the things and practices that have been passed down to them, select one that they particularly value, and then conceive and create an art piece that illustrates their choice.

    Students depicted intimate family-based traditions or one’s carried out in the larger community or even country-wide. They could have taken place at home, at school, at places of worship, on sports fields, in town centers, or in nature.

    The pieces might focus on traditional customs, holidays, celebrations, stories, food, clothing, music, dance, architecture, handicrafts, job skills, games, or religious practices.
