Art has a way of helping students better understand and appreciate the world around them, particularly the things that are most important to them. Hip hop is one of those generational genres that capture the attention of young students like few other things do. Drawing on this genre to get students to create art is an excellent way to demonstrate that art knows no bounds. By merging hip hop and Pop art, students learn that subject matter, symbols, and ideas are all around them, and any of them can be used to communicate meaning.
