A Wonderful Art Project Inspired by Kids’ Guernica at Union City High School in New Jersey, United States



July 25, 2018

A wonderful art project inspired by Kids’ Guernica has been continuing at Union City High School in New Jersey, United States. The ELL Educator, Kristine Liguori- Nazzal reported:

Since the school year of 2014-15, my students have taken part in researching, reading narrative and informational texts, writing assessments and creating artwork for a mural in progress for a Kid’s Guernica. The goal of this learning experience was to tie in with what my students were looking for in themselves and others in the world to make their surroundings a better place. Teaching ESL is such an honor, and each student who has taken part in this learning experience has a profound story of their journey coming here to the United States for a better life. As my students were creating their art pieces, I asked them to portray what they were looking for in the world through a positive aspect. Not only were my students writing, researching and reading about Kid’s Guernica, Pablo Picasso’s Guernica and informational and narrative texts based on the themes within Guernica and Kid’s Guernica, but they were also able to draw and develop these ideas that had materialized from inspiring resources. Their artwork also reflects the values and morals they have learned from their journey’s, homes and from the dedicated teachers who educate them. Currently, the mural is 140 feet long and reaches to the middle of the high school on the third floor. My wish is to continue the mural so that it reaches to the other side of the high school and influence others to take part in adding their artwork to illustrate what they wish to see in the world and their surroundings.
