If you don't have a printer, you can re-create this piece of art on a separate sheet, or color digitally.

DAY 3 - Art Analysis

Social Change Art

Social issue art is when the artist recognizes a particular social issue using art and creativity. They use creative skills to work within their community to affect change. “While a traditional artist uses their creative skills to express their take on the world, a social artist puts their skills to use to help promote and improve communities. Thus, the main aim of a social artist is to improve society as a whole and to help other people find their own means of creative expression.” (Wikipedia)
