Protect Our World
The items I used were seashells, paint, colored pencils, markers, and a white sharpie pen. I used the seashells to form a circle and painted it blue and green. The reason for me creating the world out of seashells is to state that even the smallest things, make a big difference from the biggest living object to something tiny like a seashell.
I drew a boy and a girl with their hands cupped under the world to explain another statement. What I wanted to tell the audience with this picture is that only if we work together we can make a better world for everyone. I outlined both of them with a slight gold glow, because they’re both happy and in a sense, pure even though we all make mistakes as humans.
The background takes place in space because it naturally seems to fit the zoomed out world setting. I also colored it in the natural colors of the galaxy because it explains that with the entire galaxy, explored or not, there is an endless possibility to what you can do to save the environment. Volunteering to do things to make an environmental impact can be as simple as using less water, picking up trash, or turning off a light. Do whatever you can to protect all that is dear to you as well as others that share this world.
