Living in the Wall; The Art of Protest, Palestinian Israeli Relations

The name of this lesson plan is "Living in the Wall; The Art of Protest, Palestinian-Israeli Relations." This entry has been created by a teacher after returning home from Jordan and the West Bank. It is intended for high school painting students to learn about how observing politically motivated art can lead to a better understanding of social justice and human rights, how political art reflects the feelings of the artists and the greater population, and how visual arts can be a voice for the unheard or oppressed. The end result will be students reflecting on personal and social issues they are deeply passionate about and creatively combining them into one large scale painting to be displayed in a public setting.
