Speaking the Culture of the Middle East

"Speaking the Culture of the Middle East" is a lesson intended for high school Drawing students to respect and understand the plight of a political refugee, consider how creating art begins to heal ones past and allows for emotional release. It allows students to think about global issues in a visual way leading to new thinking and ideas. The ending result is the creation of a piece of art using specific guidelines and a reflection artist statement.
