to the Artful Truth-Healthy Propaganda Arts Project. This innovative
arts curriculum demonstrates the power of art in a way that few
others can. As our environment becomes more populated with images,
symbols, and other visual messages it becomes increasingly more
important that students become visually literate. Artful Truth-Healthy
Propaganda Arts Project provides educators with the tools and
training to teach visual literacy in the classroom, where students
are learning to develop the critical thinking skills that will
make them more sophisticated and discerning citizens. Our mission
is to reduce tobacco use among young people through art education.
This curriculum is the culmination of a three-year effort that
has involved the active participation of Florida educators and
students, together with the Florida Department of Health, Division
of Health Awareness and Tobacco. This package reflects all that
we have learned-and we have proof that it works.
