Was this project a success?  Yes!  Does it need fine tuning?  Yes!  Would I encourage more teachers to give it a try? Absolutely!  I realize that many teachers will say that they are not art teachers, that using art in the classroom should be left to the art educators and visiting artists.  I would strongly remind them that this curriculum is not about ART, but creating art helps find the words to tell the story.  It’s about helping these young people find a voice for their feelings and thoughts.  It’s about changing attitudes and lives.
