Title: One Day…

Theme: Expressions of Freedom and Equality

Materials and techniques: To dye my fabric I rubber banded it into sections and then used ink, instead of dye, to make the colors more vibrant. To make the tin foil tree I made the outline with hot glue. Then I used Modge Podge and painted it in between the hot glue lines. I also crumbled the aluminum foil to give it texture. I painted the words and the people with acrylic paint and a small paint brush.

About: My artwork is about freedom through equality. This was Martin Luther King Jr’s dream. Also when people feel that they are being treated equally it can make them happy and feel good about themselves. The people on the swing also symbolize freedom because I remember when I was little and when I would swing I felt free, like I was flying.

Title: Sunrise for Freedom

Theme: Expressions of Freedom and Equality

Materials and techniques: I tie dyed fabric with ink, then painted on the silhouettes and quote.

About: My artwork is about equality and the importance of respect. The two silhouettes represent the anonymous human being, meaning that no matter who you are or what you look like, everyone is equal to one another. The quote in the middle is in the shape of an equal sign to represent equality among everyone.

Title: Building Equality

Theme: Expressions of Freedom and Equality

Materials and techniques: I used palette paper and acrylic paint for the words, iron ons for the children, and fabric that I lightly dyed.

About: I picked this theme of equality because it affects everyone, whether you are one or ninety-one. A normal boy of this age should be at home playing with their blocks, trucks, and other toys, but instead the one is a child laborer, not living a normal life at all.
