Artist Statement

In this collaborative artwork, we wanted to portray the idea that all the things that make us different should be celebrated because our uniqueness makes the world a more colorful place. The students represented this idea as crayons, but instead of making their characters one solid color, they reflected their uniqueness with a variety of colors, facial features, and design elements. While we were positioning the crayons on the poster, the students joined the crayons together so that they were holding hands.
