Artwork 1: Essay by Taylor“My poster design represents imagination. Disney has been the fuel for children’s imagination for decades now. Their stories and characters inspire and reach people all over the world. Children need their creativity and imaginations to grow and expand instead of disappearing. Without creativity and imagination, we wouldn’t have advances in technology, art, or entertainment. Imagination is a key to the future, and Disney sparks that imagination.” 

Artwork 2: Essay by Lauren“I chose the design music. My theme is important to the present/future because music is expressive and about life experiences. Music keeps people sane in a crazy world. I drew a piano border with musical notes in the center. I wrote the quote music give flight to the imagination.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Maggie“I did Freedom on the American flag. Mainly because it represents freedom. The fireworks represent Independence Day. It’s important to the present, because if we weren’t free, America would be a downfall. In the future so we can do whatever we want.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Raven“My theme is on education. It’s important to both the future and the present. Why, you ask? Because we need it for our students to learn and get jobs. It represents the theme by grading scales, books, and signs.”
