Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights says:

  • (1) Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.
  • (2) Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author.

Recently Pedro Mena, art instructor at Katherine Delmar Burke School in San Francisco, used Article 27 as the theme of a printmaking project he worked on with his 5th grade art class. The girls really enjoyed making the prints, and we thought they were so great we wanted to share them with you!
