THE HERO PROJECT

ART AND STORY BY 5th GRADE STUDENTS

The Hero Project was a two-part fine art and language arts project undertaken in 2009 by 5th Grade students at Hunter College Elementary School in conjunction with Art and Remembrance. Inspired by Esther Krinitz’s art and story, the students wrote and illustrated a story about a family member who had displayed hero qualities. Full project description.
