        Five Steps to Make Your Own Political Art

        For hundreds of years, artists have used their work to spread messages about important issues. Eye-catching artworks can help start a dialogue about social justice, as well as raise awareness for political candidates, activists, and others who see room for improvement in their community and beyond. Our newest video details a formula for making political art in five easy steps by offering examples of successful projects from high profile artists Banksy, Corita Kent, Emory Douglas, Ai Wei Wei, Shepard Fairey and Barbara Kruger. Boldness, accessibility, visibility and reproducibility are just a few of the qualities that help make political art stand out and reach new audiences. Follow these five steps to create your own political art, and let your work shout a message from the rooftops! Share your ideas and artwork online and tag us @KQEDArtSchool on Twitter.
