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.
My work is about my feelings and how I'm doing during the coronavirus pandemic which is very bored.
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 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.
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.
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.
How quarantine makes me feel.
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.
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.
The artwork is about having hope that things will get better, even if it's rough right now.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ever since quarantine started I have been going on lots of hikes, it is nice to get away from the world's problems.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
I made this at the last minute and I did it because even with all the outward confusion we are still the same within.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.

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.
