Title: Be Yourself

Theme: Expressions of Freedom and Equality

Materials and techniques: Fabric, black ink, and acrylic paint

About: My artwork is a piece of white fabric on one side and black fabric on the other side. The tied edges represent white and black people coming together. The magnifying glass is magnifying a quote that says “The Best Freedom is Being Yourself” meaning everyone is different and being yourself is what makes you unique.

Title: Together in Educational Equality

Theme: Expressions of Freedom and Equality

Materials and techniques: I used transfer paper to get the picture of the building on my fabric, and then used acrylic paint for the hands, grass, and sky. The technique I used to make the hands was I mixed the paint on a piece of palette paper, stuck my hand in the paint, and pressed my own hands onto my project.

About: I chose to use a picture of the Brown vs Board of Education building and surround it with different skin colored hands to show how this building had a huge impact on getting equality into schools. Equality in schools is very important, especially in America, because everyone should have the same equal opportunities for learning.
