Heath is a 7th grader at FBCS. He enjoys playing basketball and X-Box. Heath thinks art is fun, loves that it offers him the opportunity to make things, and he is good at it. The boat picture is a project he just completed in the FBCS Art Studio. It is a great example of art being used to make a statement about an important issue. The following is what Heath wrote about his art. Great job Heath!
My artwork looks like a fishing boat. The title is the Lonely Fishing Boat. It consists of stuff that people would throw away, like cardboard, old glue sticks, bottle caps, and pencils. My artwork was inspired by boats. I wanted to show that people throw things away that can be used for art. My goals were to reuse and recycle. Making this helped me reach my goals because I took something that someone would throw away and made a boat. I learned that people throw too much stuff away that they could reuse. I will probably make more boats.
