PS 6 Art Club Illustrates United Nations Ideals

The United Nations Correspondents Association sponsors a contest for professional political cartoonists. The winning cartoons are chosen for their ability to enhance, explain and encourage the spirit and the principles of the United Nations.

Mr. Mock asked the 4th graders in the Art Club at PS (Public School) #6 in New York City to make their own political cartoons illustrating these United Nations ideals: respect for other people, friendship among nations and concern for the environment. Each Art Club child made an illustration with a slogan--a drawing plus words to help explain the picture.

"When you draw, you think, " says Mr. Mock. So, he coaches the children to use mostly black markers (sharpy's) or soft pencils and not too much color.

PROJECT IDEA: Make a Political Cartoon

Find a news story about your town on television, radio or in the newspaper.
Make a drawing with a slogan (words) to show what you think about the story.
1) Think about the news story: How would you feel if it happened to you?
2) You don't need to know how to draw. Mr. Mock says "You can draw anything you want with sausages and circles."
