Teach Your Children
Awarded by Creative Quarterly No. 33, 2013
"Teach Your Children" is a song by Graham Nash. Although it was written when Nash was a member of The Hollies, it was never recorded by that group, and first appeared on the album Déjà Vu by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released in 1970.
I wanted to capture the peacefulness and folk of this particular song. I feel that the song has a great message of hope and unity with it's beautiful melody, lyrics and harmonies. I chose to keep the palette very soft and the three members, eyes closed, almost in thought with the title floating above surrounded by elements of nature.
