Amongst recent events of increasing violence in Chicago’s South-side communities, Chicago is bringing light to the good that does occur everyday in these areas through the voices of students.
The Simple Good, a Chicago-based organization focused on connecting good around the world through art and discussion, will be hosting a thought-provoking event with 3rd and 4th grade students from Chicago’s south-side on Friday, May 31st at 5pm at LEARN Hunter Perkins Charter School Campus. Student paintings will be showcased and each student will tell their story on their meaning of the ‘simple good’ in effort to have students discover and develop their meaning of everyday good.
Participating students have been involved in a 6-week after school art program at the school which took students through a path of discovering different meanings of good through journaling, drawing and finally a painting which will be featured in the art showcase along with their stories of their meaning of good.
