“My art piece relates to Article 2 of Human Rights, Right to non-discrimination. It focuses on mental health awareness and is a visual/physical representation of schizophrenia. I am very interested in psychology and the way mental disorders impact our minds.”
ARTIST BIO: Cole Monhollen is a Grade 12 student at Butler Tech School of Art (SOA).
PROJECT: After learning about human rights in Mrs. Valerie Folz’ Government classes at Butler Tech School of the Arts, 45 high school students chose a human rights issue they wanted to research. Then in Mrs. Mary Catherine Ruby’s Visual Art + Design classes they visually communicated their voice through their art using symbolic imagery to represent the human rights issue they had selected.
