Creating Protest Art:
Using Our Voices for Change
We will explore how art has played a role in protest. Through the history of protest, protest plays and protest art, we find that art is political and plays a prominent role in protest. As we discuss how art is political, act out scenes, create tableaux, and more, we will examine the questions we need to ask and students will walk away having created their own protest art. How can we take this a step further to create change with our art?
