Theme: Freedom

Materials and techniques: Cloth, thread, needle, buttons, fusing material, sewing, Sharpie marker.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes. Our least favorite part was sewing on the buttons. Our favorite part was looking for fun materials. Something that would make it better would be a bigger canvas so we could better express ourselves.

About: Freedom and equality are the forces that drive people to strive for things that are worth it, some even risk their lives for it. They use the idea as a symbol to make all realize how good their lives are and how much worse it could be. Our artwork represents the American flag as a symbol of freedom to the American people. The different stripes on the flag represent the different types of people in the country that makes up America. The words on the canvas is a phrase from the American Constitution that symbolizes freedom and equality to our group.
