Paying Tribute to 9/11 Victims

I haven't posted in a few days because my students have been researching and creating preliminary sketches for their current project.  Each of the students in Studio art (about 70 of them total between Ms. Feldheim and I), as well as some other art students, will be creating art to pay tribute to a person lost in 9/11.  The New York Times link below was their venue to research; the website has very touching bios and photos for each person lost on that tragic day in 2001.  This project is not only about honoring  a person lost, but also a little illustration unit; students are understanding how stories can be expressed in a visual way.

Take a moment of silence, read some of the stories, and pay some tribute yourself.
