If you’ve seen the walls, you might have noticed the paintings. People were able to put their beautiful work on the wall and create a beautiful message to put across to everyone. The only reason we could have done this is because the building is getting torn up. I’m in art so painting on the wall was a requirement for a grade. You could have done it with a partner or by yourself. I did it with a partner, her name is Michelle.

We did a rainbow that had all its regular colors, but the middle faded to black. Then there is a blue background with clouds and a quote. The quote is “you look at me and think they’re so happy.” There was more to that quote, but we wanted the rainbow to say the rest. Basically, the rainbow represents people who are sad, but they act happy so no one will ask what’s wrong. We both definitely know people who do that. We also did this because mental health is important. If you’re not in the right headspace everything will go downhill.

Everyone’s art is excellent and it describes what people stand for. There are paintings for mental health, keeping the earth clean, recycling, and about all people being equal to each other. All the paintings are good topics to talk about especially toward teens. Teens are dealing with mental health issues, whether that is depression or anxiety or anything else. Getting the whole idea of keeping our earth clean and recycling is also good because this is the only earth we have, and we should keep her clean. I think that teens also need to know that people shouldn’t be divided, people need to stick together to get stuff across to people.

I think painting on the wall even if our school is getting torn apart, is a good thing because at least for this year there is more positivity. Maybe there should be painting on the new building to and if they want the paintings to be more professional, maybe they can get more professional people to paint. But give the painters ideas because when there are more positive things, the students will look at them every day and have more inspiration.
