Words Hurt And You Can't Take Them Back - Character Education / Graffiti

How do you incorporate character education into your art curriculum? I use graffiti.

Don't you think we need this in our society today? I do and what a better way to teach it than through this method!

Words Hurt And You Can't Take Them Back - Character Education
We are all walking the line, you are either with your mind or you are with life. You have a choice in every second to be or not to be. The truth of life has been revealed and it can and will transform mankind and the world. Nothing could be more important or worthwhile...So, how do you walk the line? This aspect of your life reveals your character for the good or the bad.
