Rad Teen Art of the Week: Capitalism Train

March 16, 2010


This week I’m bringing you rad art, rather than print…this drawing is from a project that students in Schenley High School’s Theory of Knowledge course did a few years ago. Students were directed to illustrate a key quote from Marx. Shaun and I were totally captivated by these drawings when we spied them in a stack in the corner of the classroom—this was not a project that we had any hand in creating, rather, this was just part of their high school curriculum! You can peep more of them HERE. The text on this drawing reads: The state, an engine of repression, can never be made into an instrument of welfare. There are so many great details on this drawing…enjoy!
