Artwork 2: Essay by Dakota“My picture is about imagination. It shows that no matter what you’re made of you are capable of imagination. There is also a metaphor of how sometimes society tries to discourage imaginative thoughts. That is what I think of my picture; however art is meant to be interpreted any way you like.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Richard“My artwork is about imagination. You can tell because I drew outer space and it is filled with random stuff. It has the planets, the Nyan cat, a turtle, and a space ship with a smiley face. It looks really cool and expresses my imagination.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Aaliyah“My art work project is about Breast Cancer. I feel so sorry for everybody that has cancer. I know that you will have to be a strong person through it all. If there was any way I could help people out, I would. I am happy that I am breast cancer free. I don’t know if I could be strong like most women that have it. And I’m very happy and proud for the women that are still fighting for their life.”

What is your artwork about? Exploring, space, imagination

Artwork 1: Essay by Bailey“My picture represents the theme “recycle” because I have the recycling symbol. I also have recyclable items on the picture. Recycling is important to the present because it stops littering and global warming. Recycling is important to the future because it will make the world cleaner. If everyone recycles the world will be a better place.” 

Artwork 2: Essay by Ty“My design represents the themes space, freedom, and art. The flag represents freedom, the astronaut, moon and stars represents space, and the paint cans and the paint roller represents art. My theme is important because space exploration is important to science. We need to keep space exploration for future purposes.” 

Artwork 3: Essay by Mary“My design represents my theme of space. The moon and planets are the outer space. The little girl is looking at the moon with wonder and amaze. This theme is important to the future because learning about the mysteries of space can improve our knowledge. The wonders of the children today will cause future explorations.” 

Artwork 4: Essay by Alaina“My design represents imagination by being unique and not being realistic. My theme is important to the future because it shows hope and without imagination the world cannot keep moving forward. Imagination gives the country ideas to invent and it is the way we continue to make money. My design represents the imagination moving forward because it shows moving from a dark time to a good time.”
