Artwork 1: Essay by Tessa“I chose space as my theme because I think that space is beautiful and fascinating. My picture has the quote “Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you’ll land among the starts.” A beautiful quote by Les Brown. Meaning aim you goals high (life for the moon) even if you don’t reach your goal, you’ll be closer than you were before (land among the stars.) So whatever you do, you need to shoot for the moon, you’ll either get there or land among the stars.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Gage“My drawing of the birdcage represents freedom. The birdcage is opened as well as the window. The birds are flying free and happy.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Roya“The theme of my picture is music. I chose this because it is very important to me. Music has a powerful way of affecting people. It is represented by all the instruments, piano keys, and music notes.”
