This work of art was originally created by Child Advocacy Artist George E. Miller II for the Arkansas Alternative Educators Conference in 2013. The theme of the conference Our Children, Our World; Our Future is also the title of the picture. The artwork illustrates our children looking ahead to the future. We have to ask ourselves; what have we equipped our children to work with that they may create a bright future for themselves and for us? The hidden message is … “Start Now, Never Give Up, Seize the Rest of Your Life”, “Believe” and have “Hope” for the “Future” Have your students write a paragraph explaining what the overall message the artist is trying to convey means to them as they look ahead to they’re futures.
