Title: Free Bird

Theme: Freedom and American Heroes

Materials and techniques: I used paint and glitter. I also used this thing where you get this kind of paper and put it on your work and you cut it out the same size and then you iron it and it is stuck on to where you want it to be stuck.

Did you enjoy this project? I did, because I got to do art and paint which I do like to do so it was fun.

About: My artwork is about our freedom that we got from our American Heroes and how that also goes with my back ground, which is the American flag and the bald eagle. It’s about how we need to be free like the bald eagle who soars through the sky, we have American Heroes who are strong and brave like our bald eagle.

Soldiers don’t just fight just to fight in a war, they fight for our rights and our freedom, you see. The American flag represents how we worked hard and we joined together as a country.

We did that with American heroes and we wouldn’t be able to do it if our American Heroes weren’t brave and strong like the bald eagle. See, my artwork goes all together because without one there would be no other.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, it was really fun sharing my ideas of American heroes !

About: My artwork is about how we see through our eyes and how we want to see peace. How we see the American flag. My artwork is how the flag is important to United States of America and our heroes. That’s why sometimes Wars should not be happening, because of how people go to war and fight for our country and some take their life for the country. The only thing I want is peace around the country!
