Framing Your Perspective Project: We are all shut in now, so let’s see what we all see–looking out, looking through, and looking inward. The shapes represent how we are feeling; what we see through those viewfinders represents all the beauty there is in life.
Masterspoofs Project: Even if we can’t go to the museum to look at art, we can explore works online. Even if we don’t have all of our beautiful art supplies, we can make a version of inspirational art using whatever is lying around the house!

From the artist, “I based it on a photo where I saw the Gate of India polluted with smoggy air and then I saw a photo of what the Gate of India looked like now with no pollution! I thought it would be nice to incorporate how the world is doing with Covid19. This piece also means a quite a bit to me as my friend Tansa had to move to India since her green card expired. “
Submission #38, Rowan D., Age 13
From the artist, “My piece is of some people who are all trapped on their own islands, all floating 6 feet apart, who want to be free, but cannot be, since they are all in locked boxes, representing quarantine, which can only be unlocked with a key that is so far away, and not within their locked boxes, which symbolizes the vaccine, which we cannot help the development of, since most of us are not scientists.”

Submission #48, Valerie, age 10
From the artist, ” [I] did a paper cut out art piece and put 2 figures in a Corona Virus as a ying-yang. I wanted to show how there is good and bad in this situation. There is one figure that is upset and another comforting. It is unclear who the figures are and what their relationship is because we are all affected by this. We are all in this together, the faded hearts hearts in the background represent things people had their heart on such as graduations, weddings, recitals, and more. The hearts are cracked but not completely broken, They will mend. We will be able to do the things in the heart just not now…we must be patient.”
Submission #49, Erika, age 7
From the artist, “[I] wanted to do something 3-D. It’s a clay Corona Virus with a mean face because it is causing so much trouble in everyone’s lives. I used tacks to make it’s spikes. Tacks represent things that we use to attach important things on a bulletin board. Spikes on the virus work the same way by attaching themselves to our cells. On the ends of the tacks are the things that are important to us like school, recitals, class trips, and more. These things are on hold due to Covid 19. But I’m hopeful that once there is a vaccine, these things will be released and we will be able to do them again.”
