Printing posters for our 3rd annual 8th grade #InsideOutProject at @The_School! #artsed

 

This is the third year that 8th graders from The School at Columbia University have participated in the global Inside Out Project. JR launched the Inside Out Project from the TED stage in 2011, and I was immediately inspired to do a group action project with my students. The 8th curriculum centers around a Social Justice theme, and JR’s talk was about Social Action and how Art can change the world.

In previous years, I partnered with Yoshiko Maruiwa to lead an Inside Out elective for about 13 students. This year, the whole Art Team is on board! I’m so excited that Kim Lane, Lindsay Calhoun, and Katelin O’Hare have joined forces with me and Yoshiko to make the project an even richer and more collaborative experience. Our theme is See, Hear, Speak and addresses the students’ pledge to speak out against injustice that they witness in the world.

I’ll upload our group action to the official Inside Out Project website, and we’ll receive large format posters (3′ x 5′) to offer our students. In the meantime, I’m totally taking advantage of our HP Designjet T120 to make smaller versions (2′ x 3′) to hang in the numerous window panes of our Art Studio. The students are hanging their portraits on Wednesday, and it’s going to be amazing…
