About: Our theme for our artwork for the Dream Rocket Project was Rodger Williams: Dangerous Opinions. We discussed Rodger Williams and our vision of what we hope the future will hold for us all. We wanted to go in a historical perspective in regards to Rodger Williams. Our work of art shows Freedom throughout Rhode Island and the Rest of America. Our three freedoms we feel as being most important is: Freedom of religion, speech and expression.

About: Our theme for our artwork for the Dream Rocket Project was Rodger Williams: Dangerous Opinions. We discussed Rodger Williams and our vision of what we hope the future will hold for us all. A theme that was important to us was gender. One of our classmates shared that they have a friend who has been bullied due to being transgender. We hope that in the future everyone feels that It does not matter if you are born in a gender you do not identify with. Be who you want to be. We hope in the future, people will stop bulling others you for being transgender.

About: Our theme for our artwork for the Dream Rocket Project was Rodger Williams: Dangerous Opinions. We discussed Rodger Williams and our vision of what we hope the future will hold for us all. We chose equality as our focus on our work of art. Our artwork shows race equality and we hope it shows that everyone should treat everyone nicely. People should treat each other how they want to be treated. We do not want people judging others by their skin color, we want people to think of personality and not skin color. We also want to show people who have been segregated coming together.

Title: Anyone Can Do It

Teacher: Mrs. Moe

Theme: Women’s Rights

Materials and techniques: Pencil, Sharpie marker, acrylic paint, button, and hot glue.

Did you enjoy this project? Yes, it was a lot of fun working together as a class. I enjoyed the drawing and enjoyed painting her.

About: Our theme for our artwork for the Dream Rocket Project was Rodger Williams: Dangerous Opinions. We discussed Rodger Williams and our vision of what we hope the future will hold for us all. Our topic for this artwork focused around where we hope Women’s Rights will be in the future. We hope as a class… that in the future, Woman’s Rights would be a non-issue; that woman can do what they want. We hope that no person, regardless of being male or female would think of themselves as “less than” or “not equal to”. We used Rosie the Riveter in our artwork because she is an iconic figure that was used during WWll who represented women who were working in factories. Instead of her saying: “We Can Do IT!”, to help portray out theme that in the future everyone will be equal in society, we had her say: “Anyone Can Do IT!”
