Product Details


"A compendium of modern protest art practices. Nichols’s own journey from social work graduate student and teaching artist to artivist (artist activist) provides its narrative framework….’How to’ activities are paired with basic protest art methodology — symbols, colors, fonts, etc. — and historical context.
—The New York Times Book Review

Abundant contextual information pairs beautifully with encouragement to engage—safely—with protest in a variety of ways suited to civic-minded young artists. Nichols is sure to inspire an entire generation of new ‘artivists.’
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The art in this book is amazing. . . the bold colors and fonts used in the graphic design illustrate technique and provide examples for readers.
—School Library Connection (starred review)

This attractive offering serves as a primer on using graphics and visuals as forms of public communication. . . . Nichols calls herself an "artivist," and this fresh guide, which introduces an array of diverse artists and activists and offers insightful tips about art, should inspire aspiring artivists like her.

Artivist De Nichols collaborates with four other artists to create a gorgeous tribute to art as a medium of social protest. . . . This heavily designed and illustrated work is striking. . . will inspire teens to make a difference themselves.
—School Library Journal
