Title: “Unlock Freedom”

Theme: Women’s Rights

Materials and techniques: Paper, pen and ink, paint, colored pencil, marker.

Artist statement:
“We choose to make two faces cut in half to show the two different sides of women’s rights. And on the left side is a man who is black and that means that even the race doesn’t matter when men have more rights than women. On the right side it’s a woman that has basically a collar made out of steel and steel chains, and she is breaking the chains to her true self and that is a free woman on the inside, but outside of her she feels the continues struggle for her and all other women in the world’s freedom. And during this we have learned more about women’s rights and that women all over America still don’t get the same equality treatment and they get payed less than men.
For the quotes we used was “All men are created equal” which pretty much is true, men have way more freedom then women’s do. I don’t find it right that we have to go through much things in our life to not be treated equal. On the women side the quote used was “Human rights are women’s right.” Why can’t we all have the same rights, be able to gain the same amount as men do? But in my opinion woman are much more capable to do more than men do.”

Teacher statement: The advanced students had a presentation from one of our history teachers on women’s suffrage. They developed their questions before hand and answered them during the presentation. The students were pit into groups of 2-3 and developed their ideas in a sketch book, then finished their 2×2 final for substitution.

Title: “Women’s Rights”

Theme: Women’s Rights

Materials and techniques: Paper, pen and ink, paint, colored pencil, marker.

Artist statement:

“We represent women’s rights by showing a woman bursting through a wall of words that degrade her as an equal person. What it means when she is bursting through the wall is that women have just started gaining there rights and now they should be and have equal rights with everyone. We used bright colors in the middle from where she is bursting is because woman are colorful and the colors we used shows that woman are powerful, colorful, and we are bursting with ideas and power.”
