Andy Warhol: When he discovered he had the pigmentosis he decided to
make the white hair and sunglasses his trademark instead of trying to
hide the white hair and sensitive eyes.
Probably the English teacher will not see Andy as a role model. Oh
well, just a thought. Andy also did an important series of silk
screens on endangered species. Also a series on drunk driving which
I use for DARE

Keith Haring and his work supporting social causes, antinuclear
leaflets, Free South Africa posters, literacy and anti smoking/drugs
campaign. (also a good DARE artist)

Winslow Homer was a war correspondent

Any of the Mexican Muralist for raising the consciousness of the world
about the treatment of workers and the indigenous people.
