Through the Eyes of Children: Liberty and Justice for All.
New York State Alliance for Arts Education.
This publication is the result of a project in New York State to increase public awareness of themes related to the U.S. Constitution using the medium of the arts. Designed as a photo essay, the volume reflects the activities of thousands of students in the Statewide Mini-Imagination Celebration Program. In efforts to understand the impact of freedom and fairness on their own lives, students utilized the literary, visual, and dramatic arts. The first section of the document identifies the schools whose Mini-Imagination Celebrations are documented and describes how they used the arts to celebrate liberty and justice for all. The second section presents the themes that emerged as the children's work was assembled. (DB)
