This tree of life represents me and my family. The quote I included on my tree says, “If you had to choose between being right or being kind, choose kind.” The butterflies on the side of my tree represent how my brothers and sisters. The blue one are my brothers and the purple one are my sisters. This tree is a symbol that reminds me of how we come together and make good choices, that we can do anything. If you look close at the roots in my artwork, they are all connecting which is a symbol that no person should be left out of this world. We should all be included because together we rise as a family and a community.

My artwork is a self-portrait. I used words in my background to describe my community, my family and lastly words that describe me. I made the words “Together We Rise” bigger to make the powerful statement that when we work together we achieve more. Then I painting through my portrait the colors of a beautiful sunset that are cool and calming. These are my true colors.

The artwork represents my tree of life. One side is warm and happy. The other tree is cool and lonely. Both trees bend to the sun and to the moon for so they feel less alone in the world. Then they realize they are not alone. They have each other, along with the birds and the stars in the sky. And together they rise.

In this picture the girl is reaching for the stars. You might not notice that she is also reaching for her friend. The colors I used were cool and calming. I added yellow to represent life and happiness to contrast the night sky and the stars.

This artwork is my Tree of Life. The objects on or around my tree represent the most important things in my life. If you look closely at my tree you will notice an owl on the branch representing my mom, and next to it is a beehive representing my hardworking family, who I love. The quote I wrote on my tree of life by Maya Angelou reads, “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. This quote is so important because it remind us that our words and actions have power, more than we realize. And we should remember that even small actions can impact others.

My artwork is about collaboration and how anything is possible when you work together. I cut and tore paper to make the background have rhythm and movement. The two figures are interacting with each other to show togetherness, friendship, and how being kind and showing others compassion can bring happiness to everyone around us.
