In this free multimedia arts course, students will explore immigration and deportation and its impact on the Mexican Community. Participants will examine the criminalization of the communities and families and how the stripping away of their status and reclassifying them as “Illegal Aliens” results in loss of human rights and dignity.

Students will be introduced to large scale paintings to explore issues related to incarceration and immigration, drawing connections between the past and present. This class will culminate in a final presentation at the OPEN house in May 2018.
