Peace Art: Words and Images Interwoven
The session will focus on the notion of peace and its manifestations in images and art. First, peace symbols will be discussed. Then, we will move on to discuss certain peace-related artworks (the ancient sculpture of Irene and three murals created by Banksy). Next, there will follow such activities as writing acrostics forming the word “peace” and writing an interpretation of one of Banksy’s murals from the point of view of the main character. The session has been tested with my students, who came up with meaningful interpretations of peace artworks and very interesting acrostics.
