Artwork 1: Essay by Chelsea“My Dream Rocket Project was on peace. I used emphasis and motion as my principles of design. The world needs peace because without it there would be constant fighting going on in the world.”

Artwork 2: Essay by Kelsey“My design represents the theme because one of the topics was space and I drew Earth and the moon. Also another one of the topics was art so I put a paintbrush. My theme is important to the future because it shows how art is used in space. Everything around us is art.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Christian“My picture represents imagination. It represents imagination because he is fishing in the clouds. And it’s important because it shows to never stop dreaming and keep a good imagination.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Alexis“Poverty is a cruel thing. If many of the rich would care and make sure the poor had clothes the world would be better. Unfed kids could eat and be happy again. We all could be part of a great community. I feel so bad when I see little kids sad.”
