Teaching Children’s Rights Through Art

The Children’s Rights Centre at Cape Breton University, with funding granted by Heritage Canada, has developed a curriculum entitled Teaching Children’s Rights Through Art.  The curriculum was developed with the aid of a local teacher, Diane Lewis, who helped pilot the activities with her Grade 10 and 11 classes from Memorial High School.

Students, using painting, sculpture, and other visual arts media, designed an artistic representation of each article in the Convention.  This curriculum is designed to convey the principles of the Convention of the Rights of the Child, to increase the student’s sensitivity to the importance of the rights of others, and to enhance the student’s appreciation of the visual arts.

The curriculum is available in English and French
