BENEFITING: American Red Cross

EVENT: Shelter of Hope

EVENT DATE: Jun 02, 2016

American Red Cross of San Diego-Imperial Counties

THE STORY:

Over the course of winter semester, the 10th grade students at High Tech High studied the effects of El Niño and other natural disasters throughout our local and international communities. The students worked closely with our staff to learn about disaster preparedness, response, and recovery, and have participated in numerous community service projects. Additionally, the students conducted interviews with first responders and residents who have been affected by El Niño.
 

As part of this ongoing exploration of the disaster cycle, each student created two pieces of artwork related to their studies. The first piece is a wire sculpture representative of something they learned or took away from the one-on-one interview. The second piece is a linoleum print inspired by one of two books that were read during the semester:  Wave by Sonali Deraniyagala and Zeitoun by Dave Eggers.

The art pieces were exhibited at a silent auction on May 25, then 10 of the pieces were selected to be showcased during Shelter of Hope. They traveled with the box, and can be viewed and bid on here. All proceeds raised from the artwork will benefit the American Red Cross of San Diego/Imperial Counties.
