this all sounds exciting. and how i wish i could see your collages. i had my art II students make collage/mixed media works this quarter. some very diverse approaches. (i never really thought of my art classes as therapy - but i guess they could be. the kids say it is like an oasis of relaxation in their day - and the only class subject where i have to make them leave!) if you are ever able to share yours here or on another site, i would love to see them.
How long, LORD, must I call for help, but you do not listen?
Or cry out to you, “Violence!” but you do not save?
Why do you make me look at injustice?
Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?...
Therefore the law is paralyzed, and justice never prevails....
