Artwork 2: Essay by Brittany“The theme I used for my Dream Rocket Project is imagination. I demonstrated the theme imagination by painting Spongebob and the rainbow of imagination. To combine my painting and the project, I drew the background using another theme, space. I think it is important for people to have an imagination. Imagination helps people think beyond what they already know. This can be the cause of great ideas or inventions. Everyone needs imagination in their life.”

Artwork 3: Essay by Megan“My drawing represents the Dream Rocket flying into hope and to cure cancer. My theme represents hope. People need hope when fighting with any type of cancer. My theme is important because one day they will find a cure for cancer. People in my family have been affected with cancer. I believe that with hope on day there will be a cure.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Halye“I used emphasis because my peace sign is emphasized. I did peace and music because I feel that they go together. Music allows people to express their feelings instead of holding things in. It also can help others deal with their feelings because they can relate. I also did peace because it brings people together, reminds others to not judge or hate because everyone has their own issues at the end of the day. It also teaches people to look past their difference and to love regardless. This is important to the future because without peace and music people wouldn’t be able to look past their differences and would probably have a lot of hate and mixed feelings.”
