Listening to the Wall: Part 4


Listening to the Wall is a series dedicated to showcasing pieces of student art that helped create an incarnate of the Lennon Wall  in my classroom.

I just recently ran into the student who created this piece.  While all grown up, her positive spirit remains firmly intact!  Her idea of intertwining two hands has always struck me as beautiful.

This piece almost didn’t make to the wall!  Water stains tried to smear the colors and pucker the paper, but luckily a little time pressed in a textbook saved it.  This student created the earth using a very abstract style, but the message still comes through loud and clear.

Two students came together to create this piece.  Look closely and you’ll see two hands instead of one.  There’s nothing like a little unity to carry the message of peace.

  1. Looking at these wonderful pieces of art, I realize that not only have you supported and encouraged and allowed your students to find their voices, you have also nurtured and witnessed their creativity by encouraging them to express themselves via art. Perhaps they will not have to free themselves of the burden of thinking that they are not creative, thanks to spending a year with you. What a wonderful gift!
