Artwork 1: Essay by Abbie“For the Dream Rocket Project I have chosen the theme of art. I believe art is very important to our society. WE use art to express ourselves and the things around us. Art is used throughout the world to express different beliefs and ideas. Art is also used to create many things about us such as artwork, technology, and the buildings we live in. Without art our lives would be very dull. My drawing represents the theme of art by showing the vivid colors and some of the tools we use that allow us to create.” 

Artwork 2: Essay by Kayla“The theme being showed is imagination and space. It represents the theme because everybody has a unique imagination. The picture shows individuality, and planets for the space theme. Imagination is important because in order for new technology, people have to think of things. Space is important because our earth is part of it.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Stephon“This design represents the theme “space” because its background is space. It also included some main objects in space. The rocket is heading to explore a meteor that is headed toward them, so they must hurry. Hopefully, they can make it to the moon.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Aaron“My design represents the peace and recycle themes. Our world needs a lot of peace. People are going insane. We also need to recycle. We use way to much plastic and waste that we could reuse.”
