Artwork 1: Essay by Victoria“My painting is about my rocket going into space. It helps to save our planet earth. My rocket was about to launch onto Earth. My rocket can go on for miles and miles.”

Artwork 2: Essay by Hastoce“My theme for this project is space and technology. I represented space by drawing the sun, Earth, and the moon. Also, I drew a lunar lander, and a comet that looks like a gear to represent technology and space. Many scientists are needed to track these comets and other space rockets that travel thought space. Without these brilliant minds at work, we would not know when to watch these events or even prepare for a disaster. The lunar lander was a huge success in being able to land and take off from the moon. Without this elaborate piece of equipment, we probably would not have been on of the first on the moon.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Lily“The theme that I chose is space. This theme is important to the future because on day, aliens could invade the planet or the sun might implode. Another future possibility – a more likely possibility- is the earth will die and we will have to go live in space. The design I chose to represent my theme is showing one corner of the sun, the moon, and earth. They represent space because, like everything else in the universe, is in space. I also put them impossibly close together to represent the chaos that could break out if the earth died, or Aliens invaded.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Cory“Imagination (important as it is)( is often in everyday life. Imagination and creativity are what makes life interesting and withstandable. Without it, boredom and repetition take over. I drew the “Gray Dragon” because it represents creativity and imagination.”
