What is your artwork about? It’s about the community I live in and what it means to me. I did a brainstorm about things that represented community to me, and came up with these ideas based on my involvement in many different activities and with many different people in the community.
Did you enjoy the project? Yes, I came to the library one day, and one of the librarians asked me if I wanted to participate. I said “Yes!” and it helped other kids get involved. I came to the libraries several days a week-I felt like I could have camped out here-to draw and paint.
