The Mosque Project: Collective Drawings
Erwin, Douglas B.
Arts & Activities, v152 n5 p20-21 Jan 2013
Teaching the author's fifth-graders about Islam through art was a challenge. Remembering a colleague's "Collective Architecture" project, he reworked the concept using mosque architecture as the basis for a new project. The goal was to introduce Islam and its basic tenets using the visual arts, with the hope of enhancing cultural tolerance and understanding.
