Artwork 1: Essay by Haley“I chose the music theme. Music is a big part of my life, as well as many others. My picture displays several of my favorite bands’ logo. 

Artwork 2: Essay by Cole“Recycling is important to me because I want to save the world. I’m bullied in school & my only outlet that has kept me from committing suicide is recycling. I felt like recycling would be a great topic to help me cope with my issues.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Raina“The girl in my picture is having a serious creative streak. She’s lost in her own imagination. In her imagination, astronaut kittens and rainbow unicorns are tangible. Butterflies watch the wonders unfold from their wings, and it’s possible to bathe in rainbow juice.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Taylor“I did my project on peace. It could also be represented as world peace or just plain America. I included the 50 states and the 13 colonies.”
