“My art piece is about balancing work and family under Article 12 of Human Rights. I’ve learned about how high divorce rate is and that families really struggle staying together for longer than 8 years.
The main reason for divorce is often misbalancing, ie not giving enough attention to your partner or not contributing to the relationship.”
ARTIST BIO: Morgan Deem is a Grade 11 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.
