This class will take students on a historic journey through the sacred sites of Al Quds, as they create their sketchbook journals about this sacred city. Students will get to look at visual elements from Islam’s 3rd holiest site, the Al-Aqsa mosque. Students will also get a chance to see contemporary artworks by Palestinian artists who have used their art to raise awareness about the situation in Palestine. Students will think critically about activism, study poster design, consider the pros and cons, and paint a poster called “A prayer for Palestine.”
