This piece relates to “Moving Forward” because by working together to create this piece we were able to reach the goal of making something beautiful. Sometimes you can not move forward on your own so you need people to help and assist you and this piece is an example of that!

What inspired you this year in your creative process?

My piece relates to the theme “moving forward” because in this day and age, we can learn from the generations before us. We have all seen the sadness and violence but now, we can be the generation that changes the world for the better. We can create a safer and happier earth for the generations to follow.
