Craftivism: Art with a Message
How can we create meaningful actions for our environment? How can we channel our feelings about climate change into action to make others aware?
Our project began after remote learning had begun. Students picked one work of art and wrote a response to it, answering questions like ‘What did you like about this work? What questions come to mind when you see this art?’

Students learned about “craftivism” and collected items in their own home to create art in response to current global and national issues and movements that were important to them, including climate change, COVID19 and Black Lives Matter.
