For as long as I can remember I’ve been a passionate crafter and artist. I am currently a Senior in high school and love to explore all different kinds of techniques and materials in my art. When I read the prompt for this challenge, I instantly knew that I wanted to create an image that was bold but simple. Having recently become interested in paper cutting and collaging, I decided this would be the perfect medium for this piece. As I was creating the piece, I wanted to convey a sense of harmony and togetherness for the image and it’s message. Each of the colors are represented equally across the individuals, symbolizing the connectedness that lies within all of us.
