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.
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.
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.
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 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.
This piece is showing the good and bad views of the coronavirus.
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 is my brain throughout this pandemic. I am going crazy!!!
We are basically on lockdown, which is portrayed in this painting.
My work is how the world is handling the virus.
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.
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.
Finding yourself around during Corona is crowded with emotions, hard, and most importantly, alone.
Being stuck at home makes me angry.
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.
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.
My work is about isolation not being for the worse but as an opportunity to do the things we love!
My piece is about the emotions that I get during this time.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Even in darkness we need to stop and smell the flowers.
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!
J'aime les chiens donc c'est ce que j'ai fait. Je m'ennuie aussi à mort.
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.
