Title: Everything and Everyone Counts

Teacher and organizer: Mrs. Dana Pippen

Dream Theme: Conservation/ Healthy Space

Materials & techniques used: We mostly used fabric paint to create our panel. A few spots were created with sharpies.

Participants: Nicholas, Ethan, Dakota, Madelyn, Braeden, Gabriel, Chase, Jack G., Hannah, Christian, Brianna

What is your art about? We had several different ideas about how we would want to change the world. We decided to paint a globe in the middle of our panel and put the words “change the world” around the globe. Then we divided the panel into sections and drew our different ideas. They were: keeping the oceans and beaches clean, telling people about Jesus, finding better medicines, space exploration, stopping bullying and curing cancer, diabetes and other illnesses. We wrote our theme “Everything and Everybody Counts” in the bottom section of the panel.

Title: The World Needs You

Teacher and organizer: Mrs. Dana Pippen

Homeroom: Ms. Read, Mrs. Shelton, and Mrs. Culpepper

Dream Theme: Conservation

Materials & techniques used: We painted the globe, the dream rocket and the stars. We used sharpies to make the people and animals. We wrote the words with sharpies.

Participants: Chandler, Gracie, RaMya, Jack, Eli, Branderrious, Jeremiah and Mrs. Pippen

What is your art about? We began with 7 different ideas. We worked to find a way to combine all the ideas. We decided to draw a dream rocket that has a peace sign designed in the bottom. Then we decided to draw the dream rocket going across a globe to represent our planet. We drew people and animals around the outside of the globe to represent the people and animals who will have happier lives if we live in peace together and take care of nature. Last, we wrote the words for our title and drew stars in the sky around the globe.

Title: Save People and Animals

Teacher: Mrs. Dana Pippen

Homeroom: Mrs. Turk and Mrs. Yount

Dream Theme: Conservation

Materials & techniques used: We used fabric paint and sharpies to create our panel.

Participants: Amber, Deanna, Ami, Sophia, Faith, La’Kiera, Diego, Daniel, Joseph, and Mrs. Pippen.

What is your art about? We began with 9 separate ideas. As we began to work on combining our ideas, we realized that all 9 ideas were related to conservation. We decided to paint the Earth with a heart over Mississippi because that is our state. Then we added plants, animals and people to our artwork. Last, we added our “Save People and Animals” as our title and loving each other and living in peace with each other is the way we will save the people and animals of our world.

What is your art about? As a group we elected to focus on animals, both endangered and non-endangered. We each wanted to chose our own animal to draw, and then wanted to highlight our state, MISSISSIPPI. We put the state on a round black circle representing earth. One student chose the endangered MS Sandhill Crane to go in the middle of Mississippi. We placed water animals near the bottom and land animal from the middle to the top.
