Drawing inspiration from America: Now and Here, celebrity artist to the stars and teacher Michael Bell asked his high school students to contemplate and illustrate a single human right they felt strongly about. Bell’s project, titled 30 Human Rights, successfully sparked community engagement as well as meaningful conversations about America’s people, places and ideas.
Additional photographs of the students’ work from the 30 Human Rights project, along with Bell’s own description of how you can recreate the activity in your own household, community, or classroom, can be found in the America: Now and Here Americans Participate and Studio for Learning section of the website. Americans Participate and Studio for learning is a place where you can share your art projects online. We invite you to browse existing projects or even submit your own activity for visitors—children and adults alike—to print out and participate in!
