In the days leading up to and following the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election, artist Matthew "Levee" Chavez arrived at the Union Square subway station and passed out blank sticky notes, urging New Yorkers to express themselves.
As the notes were posted to the wall, a colorful and moving collage emerged that reflected the city's rich and diverse personal responses to a divisive moment in history. In that moment, art and activism united a community.
In this DIY guide, Chavez shows young readers how to uncover their own inner artists, harness the creative process, and create their very own art projects with a purpose. Young artists will be inspired to share their own perspectives and make a difference—from their homes to schools to neighborhoods and the whole broader world.
