How can you use art to inspire positive social change?
Activists Unite! Students will be presented with historical and contemporary public artworks which call for social change or create awareness about local, national or global issues.
Through the design of a stencil, students will use their problem-solving skills to make a simple yet powerful image with positive and negative shapes that express a need for social change!
By the end of the Mixed Media: Stencils for Change (formerly Urban Art) program, students will:
- Debate the effectiveness of public art as a tool to elicit social change while gaining an appreciation for the cultural context of each issue.
- Explore stencil techniques as a tool for communication.
- Produce a stencil to express their message for social change.
