Student Project

February 1,2020-August 31,2020
The Creative Activism Program is designed for all students to discuss the experiences of young heroes during WWII. The museum exhibit focuses on the Terezin transit camp and how detainees created art to express their hardships and emotions during times of distress.

The project allows students to develop critical thinking skills by asking students the following questions: What does it mean to live through a traumatic event? How can we discuss sensitive topics? How can art be used to express empathy?

To answer the following questions, please research the history of the Terezin Concentration Camp and create a work of art based on what you've learned about the children in Terezin and what it means towards our times. Students are welcome to create an illustration representing how the information about Terezin had impacted their perspective on a historical event. In the fall of 2020, we will showcase the art in a special exhibit on Terezin in our museum.

Share your artwork with us until August 31, 2020
