Rather than studying the ways that we are the same; shouldn't we learn how to APPRECIATE the ways we are not?
quote by: Jacob H., 8th Grade, Sarasota Middle School - Sarasota, Florida
teacher: Daphne Bazenas
Although I have over 35 years experience in art and industrial design, it was not until I devoted my energy full time to art that I felt free to discover my own artistic voice. I have named my style “soul visualism” based on realism. I intentionally leave out certain details, allowing the mind to fill in the missing pieces. My piece is an example of how our differences are like magnets in that our differences can draw us together and make us stronger.
