For this project I was trying to show my feelings about quarantine and how it affected me. During quarantine I was pretty sad and very stressed about school so I painted myself crying with homework papers all over on my bed.
My art piece represents the ways in which the coronavirus has impacted my life. This piece shows the negative effects of the virus. To make it, I used a picture I took of myself as a reference. I used paint markers to color it. Surrounding myself are some of the impacts of this virus. Those are in black and white because they are negative.
This painting is based on the panic of society. Some people think this virus is taking over the world and everyone will die. This piece shows how extreme some people's thoughts can get. It shows the world becoming the virus, and the mask is there, but it doesn't help. Maybe that's how this will all turn out, but I don't believe that. I believe that this is just like a bad thunderstorm; it may be bad now, but it will soon pass.
My work is about my feelings and how I'm doing during the coronavirus pandemic which is very bored.
This artwork is about how upset I am about the Coronavirus. It’s cancelling everything and I just want everything to be back to normal. I sketched it with pencil then colored it with markers. The book stands for school, and the crossed fingers stand for friends because I can’t hang out with my friends at this time.
The project is a picture in the mountains, and it relates because there are always ways to make a bad situation better. I used bright colors, I tried to focus on one flower, and I tried to create a happy, relaxing, fun feeling.
My work is about how I feel trapped during this pandemic. I feel stuck inside my house, my room, I feel like I’m in prison. I feel so distant from everyone and nothing feels real anymore. Days are turning into weeks and weeks are turning into months. This work is a person, stuck inside a cage, drowning in air.
Through this hard time we have gotten away from everyday activities. Sometimes we don't appreciate what we have until we don't have it. Ski resorts and golf courses were shut down, along with vacation and travel spots. I love to ski, golf, and boat and I didn't realize how much it meant until it was gone.
The background has the words ‘stressed’ and ‘bored’ written all over the piece, this is to show that the two conflicting emotions are merging into each other, it also shows busyness in the piece, almost like you’re being trapped in by the words bumbling around you. The words are also wrapping around the figures neck ring, causing irritation to the figure itself. The reasoning behind the artwork is to show how I personally feel towards my personal life and school life during quarantine.
The picture is of me and my family on Easter trying to social distance while also being together. The person who took the picture accidentally put a filter on it making it too dark to see our faces, but making it perfect to represent what it's like for us during this pandemic. This picture represents that during dark times like these we as a family continue to support each other even if it is at a distance.
My project is supposed to show how even though the world is a crazy mess (the background) me and my family have been closer than ever. Especially me and my youngest brother that's why I did a big hand and a little hand. It can also relate to how people are uniting together to fight this virus.
To drink life-giving nectar, we must be still.
The fish is all alone. I find that being home with only my family is a relaxing time. So, I painted the fish with bright blue as a background to symbolize this peaceful time. The fish is painted in chalky tones to indicate the happy, calm I feel. It is finished with shellac to bring to mind the bright optimism that can happen in the imaginative, inner world of the mind.
My project centered around the good things that COVID-19 has given us that sometimes we ignore. Since COVID-19 is not letting us go to school, my family got to open our pool early. I have had a lot of fun swimming with just my family and my three sisters. I outlined the girls in a thin sharpie and used watercolor to fill everywhere else. I really wanted to exaggerate the hair and make it flowing and long because I wanted them to feel graceful under the water.
During this moment of crisis, many people say that life is on hold. Through my art, I wanted to convey how even though there is a virus and life is on "hold," flowers still continue to bloom and life still carries on. The main message of my artwork is to keep moving forward. For example, take a walk, Facetime your friends, or do an indoor work-out. Don't just stay inside all the time.
My project is an example of how I and people like me find peace in our safe spaces during these times. For me, being in my bed is how I find peace, it’s how I distance myself from the problems of the world.
My artwork is mostly focusing on the emotions in people during this time. You are able to tell a lot about peoples emotions through their eyes. In this drawing I am focusing on the fear in peoples eyes during this time. In my drawing there are many symbols that relate to COVID 19 such as the virus and a mask. My drawing is supposed to show the uncertainty of people during this time and how the future will look.
I used to have fun thinking about my future and what it can hold. Now, I mainly stress about the future because nothing will ever be the same again. All of my goals and plans for the future will be difficult to accomplish with this virus that will inevitably always be here. I will have to work extra hard to accomplish the things I want in life. My piece is representing how I feel on the inside and my stress. Luckily, art is a stress reliever for me.
Even in darkness we need to stop and smell the flowers.
The painting reflects both sides of the experience of the pandemic. The top part of the painting is chaotic. The bottom of the painting is peaceful. The outside. The indoors. The external vs. the internal.
This artwork is about my emotions during quarantine. The lines represent the different emotions I feel, the flowers are me, and the paper is the effect that this situation has had on me. This started as just a practice piece, but it turned into one of my favorite paintings.
I chose to do some hands in the middle, with each of them having a matching friendship bracelet. As we all stay home I realize how much I miss them, and how excited I am to be with them once this quarantine is over. As you can see in my painting, the hands are messy, and the watercolors are out of the lines. Friendships aren’t always perfect, sometimes they’re a little messy, and even though you have differences that’s what makes you come together! Just remember not to take your friends for granted!
This piece is showing the good and bad views of the coronavirus.
My project relates to Covid because people can only connect online now, but we are closer to our families now more than ever. I wanted to express a longing or sad feeling to show how many people have been feeling during this time.
I'm a gymnast and I can't go to gymnastics. I miss my team dearly but can't see them, so I put my pain into art. This was my way of saying, we're reaching out, but, can't touch.
This art piece is about how Covid-19 has affected many people's life. We all have a balanced yin and yang in our head. At this time though, our Yin and Yang may feel unbalanced and our darkness is bleeding into our light. Even though this is how many of us feel, the darkness will eventually turn to light, as you see in the background. There will always be balance in our lives, even if it appears that there is none.
I made this piece because at first it looked easy, but as I tried to complete it at home without any of the proper materials I realized that this was going to be a lot harder than I thought. I am very happy with the way this project turned out considering that I have never tried to do this a home using a cutting board, a butter knife, and a rolling pin.
I made this at the last minute and I did it because even with all the outward confusion we are still the same within.
My work is how the world is handling the virus.
My piece of artwork reflects what it is like to be alone and altogether. Even though the sprout is the only one visible, there are hundreds more seeds hidden underneath the dirt. It sometimes feels lonely during these times, but there are a lot of other people who we can relate to and connect with.
Happiness can come from anywhere even if everything is wrong. I made it by cutting out the Muppets in a car and there is a bubble of sunshine around them and a car and then on the outside there are breakups, lava, floods, etc.
My project is meant to show my epic introvert-ness. Over the quarantine, people haven’t been doing too well with social distancing and wish to go outside again. I myself however am an introvert and the cancelation of school has not affected my daily life very much, this is what I wanted to show in my photo.
Being a very artistic person I don’t only do art but act, sing, and play instruments. Quarantine is very hard to live through, but art and song can bring hope and happiness. Even if it’s not a lot, every little bit counts.
My project relates to COVID because it shows how some people feel during COVID. It has a darker mood with darker/cooler colors like gray and blue.
The artwork is about having hope that things will get better, even if it's rough right now.
I tried to capture two things in this painting 1.) How during quarantine we are watching our favorite shows, hanging out with family, and doing more things that we love. It's a time where we have time to do other things that we have wanted to do but have never had the time. 2.) How younger people aren't taking this as seriously and just throwing on a mask and still hanging out with people. Just not really caring about it. I know many people who just don't care about any of this.
Ever since quarantine started I have been going on lots of hikes, it is nice to get away from the world's problems.
Finding yourself around during Corona is crowded with emotions, hard, and most importantly, alone.
One of the prompts was 'Peace and Panic', so I decided to take that and go a more personal way with it. You can really interpret it however you wish, it's really just meant to exist and illicit a reaction if you relate to it.
Being stuck at home makes me angry.
Because of the quarantine, I have been able to connect with music more than I would have before. My project depicts a tree and my dad’s trumpet to express how music connects people, including people and events from the past.
It is about my space where I do my school work during quarantine.
When I made this I was thinking of the panic that is happening right now. I drew one side with people at a store panicking because they cannot get what they are needing. Then on the other side I drew a person with a food storage at his home. He is prepared, he is not in a panic mode, instead he is calm and is not worried if things get worse. I feel like if you're prepared you will not be worried when things get worse.
My work is just about how you just self-isolate and then you just start to feel lonely. This girl lives by herself and wonders why all of this has to happen, why she is so lonely.
Inspired by Andy Goldsworthy, I thought it would be fun to focus on a different kind of "TP" given the current pandemic! Being quarantined due to Covid-19 made this project a little tricky because I couldn’t go far to collect anything. This is what I was able to create using different items found in nature close to my house.
When I started this project I wanted to do something that reflects the statement ¨Spiraling out of control.¨ I thought, I might as well draw a spiral. I wanted my image to contrast in multiple ways. That is why the backgrounds are cool calming colors, and inside the body there are warm colors. I wanted to make wavy brush strokes, as well as organic lines on the outside. I wanted to make the lines inside the body geometric, and staggered. This reflects how we are all feeling. The world outside seems normal, but within us all it is chaos.
During quarantine I found peace and happiness in fairy tales. It was nice just to escape into reading. My project is about mythical creatures in fairy tales.
My art work is focusing on the Covid-19 virus. I choose to draw it like this because I was thinking about what we would remember from Covid-19 and what it would be like when it was all over. It is a drawing of three picture frames. In each one is a memory that I will have from Coronavirus. The first picture is of an empty city due to being quarantined. The second picture is of an empty store because of all the people that are stocking up on supplies. The last picture is of a storage room filled with all the necessities, and toilet paper. The picture symbolizes that in the future all that is happening now will only be a memory. The brick wall I think is also a symbol of how it has come to a stop and there is no more. This piece represents how we can learn from what happened in the past and fix the things that we have done wrong and maybe give new perspective.
My work is about isolation not being for the worse but as an opportunity to do the things we love!
I drew a picture of someone texting their friends wishing they could hang out. This relates to COVID-19 because we are all quarantining ourselves in order to curb the spread of the virus, so we don’t see any of our friends.
My piece is about the emotions that I get during this time.
My project aims to represent the relationship between caution and paranoia. As well as the all encompassing feelings of dread and fear the world is experiencing right now.
J'aime les chiens donc c'est ce que j'ai fait. Je m'ennuie aussi à mort.
This is my brain throughout this pandemic. I am going crazy!!!
My work is about the two different ways I view corona. One half is being able to relax a bit and stay home, the other half expresses how trapped the whole thing can make people care.
My project is about how I have found happiness in this time. When I read it’s kind of like I am escaping from the real world and living in a magical one.
We are basically on lockdown, which is portrayed in this painting.
For my project I wanted to focus on the emotional trauma of a global pandemic. It showed two people surrounded by enlarged items that are normally very small. In a world where you can't leave, you as a person can feel like the world is so big when you aren't on top of it.
I have decided that since people can't get close to each other, it would be cool to draw an eye close up. Many people may not realize, but the eye is very interesting. Eyes are something you see every day yet you might not know it is there. You might not know what it really looks like from this perspective. That is why I decided to do the eye. I used a pencil and just began drawing. I did this during the quarantine for the coronavirus and social distancing, which influenced my art.
The world in the background is a spread map of Covid-19. The man in front of the world represents all of us praying for relief out of this pandemic. The hearts inside of the man represent the love that we are surrounded by and the support of others. The flowers on the land symoblize the beauty that can come from something painful and hard. And the Covid-19 spread dots resemble drops of blood for all those that have died fighting this virus. Last but not least the burnt edges signify the pain and destruction that it is all around us.
During this time we are alone yet altogether. A bee goes on its own journey to find flowers but when it can come back to the hive, with the many other hard working bees, together they can create a masterpiece of honeycomb. It takes time and all the bees help but the satisfaction of the honey will make it all worth it. Each puzzle piece is a part of a bigger picture.
In my project she is surrounded by numbers. The numbers represent the deaths that Covid-19 has caused. She is feeling scared, lonely, and worried for the people around her. I used the numbers because they were surrounding her. I put the photo in black and white so it can show that she feels she’s living in a black and white world, with not a lot of human interaction. I’m trying to create a feeling of sadness.
It seems like everything is spiraling out of control but if you look to the future(the red part) there is hope and verses of encouragement.
This piece was created using childrens toys and foam blocks, which gives the illusion of a 3D image. This piece captures the eye of the viewer through its distribution of bright colors across a neutral canvas, causing them to search or spy all the objects they can. which object do you spy first?
I made Separated to exemplify my feelings about quarantine. I've been really sad about being away from my friends, and I wanted to draw something based around those feelings. Thank goodness texting exists.
I chose to take a picture of my dog because with COVID-19 going on, life is a little more difficult. So whenever I feel too stressed, I just go outside and play with him. I used different lighting to make the picture look warm and bright to show that that is how he makes me feel! This is how I’ve found peace during this time of insecurity.
I wanted to really have an accurate representation of what is happening currently. My piece shows how washing our hands is actually affecting the virus, and many people, including myself, have been much more aware of how much they are cleaning their hands and surroundings around them.
My project conveys how me and others commonly feel during quarantine. With quarantine people start to feel alone, we have our families, but having friends around feels better. It's important for us to know that there is always someone that has our backs, even during this weird time.
This picture is about admiring the tiny beauties in the world, because the world is full of them and sometimes we forget to admire them.
This time has been a test of my mental stability. I have a substantial amount of anxiety and stress as anyone would during this time. In usual everyday life I would go to dance 6 days a week to help me deal with my issues. My studio has started online classes during this time and it has been the light in the shadows of my anxiety. The profile in the bottom left corner represents me in this quarantine and the dancer above represents my online dance class. The darkness around is my anxiety and stress and around the dancer it lightens up. It’s still not perfectly white, but it’s lighter.
My image relates to the prompt because sunsets are always very pretty and whenever I look at a sunset it makes everything very peaceful. It also makes me happy because I love sunsets because usually there are clouds and I love clouds so it just makes it a lot better when there are clouds. Sunsets are also very colorful and I love things with a lot of color so it makes me happier when I look at a sunset. For the image I just want it to have a simple look. I would like to create a calm and relaxing feeling. I am going to use very light colors so nothing crazy is happening in the image. I also am blending mostly everything together so it all flows together.
This is about the main way I'm finding comfort and peace through this time. Music is always there whenever I have doubts in life.
My artwork is a fork transforming into a leaf through a steady process in five steps. I made it by drawing and copying a fork and making small changes ending in the final picture of a leaf.
My work is about how I feel in quarantine.
I based this off of colors you may see in outer space.
My photo relates to the prompt by finding peace of mind by being in nature and in solitude, the beauty found in nature and in the cherry blossom tree, the beauty in the color and the form of the petals. It is due to being on lock down due to COVID-19 allowing me to find peace and beauty in nature once again.
This piece resembles the worrier. They have worried themselves to the point of which they cannot climb back out (at least in their mind) and have stepped off the staircase. It’s kind of like the saying ‘Making a mountain out of a molehill.’ The surroundings are dark and bleak, like that’s all they see from this situation. Which yeah, it’s frightening to think about those that you can lose, but you’ll be too busy worrying to actually spend time with them IF the worst occurs. I also like to think there’s a ladder at the bottom that they can use. They’re not stuck physically, but mentally. And once they’re ready they can climb back out.
The reason why I used hands is because hands can do so many things and why they are red is because red stand for emotion and many others things like love, passion, desire, anger, strength and longing. And I made it with a brick ripped up pieces of paper after it was all glue down and dried put paint on my hand and pressed them down on the piece and went over some spot with paint again for shape.
During the quarantine I have seen all the work my mom does for me and my family of six so I thought that I would recreate what she does. I set up some socks on a table and put a controller in the back to represent what my mom would want to do but instead she has to take care of me and my family.
How quarantine makes me feel.
Even when my personal world is spinning, I still find peace and beauty all around. Before the COVID-19 outbreak, everything about my life rotated around basketball. I thought about it, played it, watched it, improved on it, dreamed about it. Now with the world changing, my focus is spinning. I have learned to look outside of the spinning hoop and find the beauty all around. I used a photo of my basketball hoop and edited it using multiple layers.
My whole life has changed. Everything has gotten worse. I had to find a way to calm down, so I started to paint pour. Paint pouring is a way I can express myself without getting mad if I make a mistake. It’s my own personal escape which gives me peace. What you see is waves and layers, but deep down it’s showing me. My trials and my imperfections. Outside I’m happy, but inside I need this to be over. I want this paint pour to make you feel peaceful and happy, just like how it felt when I made it.
This photograph shows the aftermath of a building from an earthquake.
My project was made to express that in these hard times it may seem sad and down but if you keep reaching this can be a time of improvement and growth. I had my dance season taken from me but this has given me more time to self improve and grow in my sport.
I made this for my grandpa for his birthday. It is made out of a steel saws all blade. I draw the blade shape I like and cut in out with a grinder. The handle is made of epoxy, leather and cedar wood. It is pieced together with epoxy and once it is dry I sand it down to give it the shape I like. It is sealed with super glue and them polished to make if shiny. The sheath is made of leather that I stamped on and dyed with shoe polish.

My project has to do with Covid-19 because it represents strength and power. I didn’t shade it because I just wanted something fun to draw. My project made me feel good because it gave me something to do during this pandemic that’s happening.
