Artwork 1: Essay by Trey“This picture shows creativity using space with space. It has a spaceship symbolizing space such as the planet Earth and the moon. My picture represents the fact that you can be whatever you want to be when you get older, you just going to have to work for it.” 

Artwork 2: Essay by Austin“The theme I chose is freedom. I drew an American flag with all the symbols for the Avengers. When I hear the word freedom, I think of the American flag. I also think of the Avengers. The Avengers protect the citizens of America from all evil.”

Artwork 3: Essay by Kaleb“The health sign stands for me being very healthy and I care about my health. Music symbolizes, I love listening to music. The battery stands for me having a lot of energy. The peace sign stands for freedom and no harm.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Tyler“My project is an inner mechanism that portrays a rocket going to and from the moon. The mass acceptation of the future relies on technology yet the adolescence of today seems to have fallen in the technology apocalyptic event. My drawing reflects on the future of technology with being capable of withstanding daily trips to the moon. This is freedom. This is America.”
