Artwork 1: Essay by Austin“My drawing is of many things. For the rocket I couldn’t just draw anything so I drew a sportsman fleur delis along with a satellite. This will be cool to see go up into space. It is a Southern based drawing. Well, hope to see it fly.”
Artwork 2: Essay by Jadie“I chose to use music and community for my Dream Rocket Project. I chose music because it can bring people together. I chose community because it is a collection of people working together to help their town. Music brings out how people feel about things. They can bring problems and possible solutions to help.”
Artwork 3: Essay by Wes“In this drawing a character by the name of Patrick Star lives at his house building things. He has lots of ideas that go through his head. He imagines all kinds of things with Spongebob. He just built his house out of rock! What a creative guy!
Artwork 4: Essay by Christian“The picture of the peace sign depicts peace on Earth. The recycle sign depicts a clean environment. Music is symbolized by the note and the flag describes freedom of America. The paint brush shows the art of our nation.”
