The Art of Violence

Violence and human suffering, as represented in art and film, are the focus of an investigation of the power of visual images and the moral implications of such representations. Class members examine “Guernica,” Pablo Picasso’s massive mural, read David Carr’s article, “Stalking Oscar, With Carnage and Mayhem,” and examine other artistic responses to violence. Individuals then create their own evocative work of art in response to a news article on violence or disasters.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
