I used to teach first grade before I even considered the possibility that I might be an artist. One day I tentatively drew a stick figure (impoverished school, lousy resources) and received unanimous accolades from a roomful of little bitty people. I was delighted. So I think of them and still do art from time to time that I think they might be able to “read,” despite the serious topics I deal with. Children can understand injustice, when it is happening to them or when it happens to other people.
