“Look at a tree for one hour…” This except from Learning by Heart is based on a real assignment Corita gave her students at Immaculate Heart College. Corita’s assignments were designed to make students see things differently and conquer the intimidation that can accompany creation. #coritakent #learningbyheart #arteducation (at Corita Art Center)

Today is #WorldFoodDay, celebrated on the day the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organization was founded in 1945. Many of Corita’s works drew attention to feeding the hungry and it was a topic often discussed at Immaculate Heart College. This work “fresh bread” is from 1967.

Today would have been the 77th birthday of #JohnLennon. Corita used Lennon & Paul McCartney’s iconic Beatles lyrics on 7 of her works including “yellow submarine” from 1967.

#BTD in 1869 was Gandhi, who Corita quoted in her 1964 serigraph “that they may have life.” The Gandhi quote reads “there are so many hungry people that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
