    Student ArtworkWhen I took this photo, I wanted to capture the vibe of Seattle. When you think Seattle, you probably think of rain, nature, and a big city, which is what I tried to show in a single photo.

    Student ArtworkMedium: Origami Paper Artists Statement: I wanted the origami to be complementary colors which is why they are red and green. I took the photo of my art at a quarter to three. Also, the quarter was added to show the size of these three origami pieces. These are some of my favorite and most-made origami pieces that I have done.

    Student ArtworkArtists Statement: When I first started the process, I didn’t really know what I wanted to create but eventually I remembered a piece of work I had seen in a museum in Arizona and an idea came into my mind. I decided to create a circular rainbow with the flowers and plants I found in my yard. I have always had a fascination for rainbows, and I would create them wherever I could and with whatever I could find in that area. I hope whoever sees this feels a slight sense of joy, because I know that’

    Student ArtworkAs you can tell by this piece, this recipe originated in Russia, specifically in Siberia. I chose it because it is a family recipe and, not only that, but to the Russian community in Seattle, and anywhere else, making this dish is considered a social event, so for us it is more than just food. I used the space on my paper in a way that you can tell the origin of this recipe without reading about it - the top row has a white background, the middle row blue, and the bottom row red, which are the c

    Student ArtworkWhen looking at this piece, you will notice something unusual about the city, the first thing being that they have miniature forests on the tops of almost all of the buildings. This was inspired by a project known as the "Liuzhou Forest City." This is being constructed in the Guangxi province of China and is set to absorb 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide annually. and to include nearly one million plants, making an ecosystem of its own. Of course, my piece is not anywhere near being directly copied

    Alisa Bajenova, 8th Grade, Hamilton International Middle School, "Perspective City", Mixed Media

    Student ArtworkThe inspiration for my piece came from me wanting to learn a new way of drawing in perspective, and wanting one that's unique. I decided to put my city in a sunset because of how vibrant the sunsets' colors can be, unlike the usual grays.

    Amara Kruse, 8th Grade, Hamilton International Middle School, "5 Point Perspective City", Mixed Media

    Student ArtworkI used colored pencils. I don’t always use colored pencils, just most of the time. There is something immensely satisfying about the way colored pencils work, about the way they look when they’re sharp. I don’t always use colored pencils, just most of the time.

    Student ArtworkMedium: Graphite I have been wanting to try photo realism ever since I started drawing, and quarantine gave me the time and patience to do so. One day I watched a video on drawing skin texture, and was inspired to make a first attempt. Here it is.

    Maya Makaitta, 8th Grade, TOPS K-8, "Black Muffin", Photography

    Student ArtworkI was inspired by Mr. Bloedel’s science class about the stars and the solar system. I found it really interesting that the solar system is so large, and we were so small and insignificant compared to the stars.

    Ryan Wood, 7th Grade, TOPS K-8, "The Great Expanse", 3D

    Student ArtworkLast year during astronomy, my friend and I drew a whole star map with figures behind the constellations, and I was really inspired by the night sky in doing that. So when we did a scratchboard project this year, I had the idea to do a centaur looking up at the stars because I love drawing horses and people, and therefore centaurs. But then I remembered the star map with the figures, and a realized that that would be perfect for scratchboard- the black night sky, the glowing silver stars, the ga

    Ella Chamberlin, 8th Grade, TOPS K-8, "Centaurus", Drawing

    Student ArtworkWith this photo, I wanted show impact. I saw a leaf on the ground and took that opportunity to make a fun picture with my friend. I asked my friend if he could put the leaf to his face, with his nose poking out the hole, and he suggested his eye. I decided that his idea was better, so we put his eye to the hole in the leaf, and I put it in a puddle for sprinkled water to give it effect. I just told him not to move, and I oriented the camera so we could see his eye and some of his hand. I learned

    Graciela Claus,7th Grade, Aki Kurose Middle School, "Chinese Lantern", Drawing

    Student ArtworkI was inspired by the idea that Martin Luther King symbolizes peace.  Our society needs less hate and violence and more peaceful thoughts and actions. The colorful flower draws attention to hope, to the possibility that we can make our country a more beautiful place to live in if we support each other more and find ways to overcome our negative feelings.

    Student ArtworkMedium: Paper mache and tempera paint Artists Statement: I like exploring bright colors and chose to make a rabbit mask because I admire how fast they move. I like to go fast when I run and ride my bike. I wish I could move as fast as a rabbit.

    Student ArtworkMy piece is one of the forms of the one, two, and three-point perspectives that we learned this year. This piece was a lot of fun because I had never done a perspective piece before, so I got to learn something completely different and new.

    Zoe Greenberg, 6th Grade, Hamilton International Middle School, "Perspective City", Mixed Media

    Student ArtworkI was inspired by the cherry blossoms on the tree, and by my chickens. I chose to use marker and pencils for the art, because I like how I can use the shading, and how I can create moods.

    Serafina Figlozzi, 7th Grade, Hamilton International Middle School, "Nature Study", Mixed Media

    Student ArtworkI was inspired by the way things look in a reflection and how they look different. I don't usually use colored pencils, so that was challenging, but I like how you can shade things with them.

    Student ArtworkAs the camel is walking through the desert, it stomps its feet on the microscopic grains of sand, and becomes one with them. this art piece represents the camel's relation with the desert, which is his home and all he knows. even if the dunes of sand are not visible to the naked eye, the camel still represents its home through its body and soul.

    Galia Hamelin, 7th Grade, Hamilton International Middle School, "Camel March", Drawing

    Student ArtworkThis piece was inspired by a study of organic life in my area. I employed a grid technique, mapping out where the individual leaves would go before shading them with pencil. Despite using this method, it was particularly difficult to ensure the proper proportions.

    Student ArtworkMedium: Acrylic paint I've always thought that whales were such cool animals, and the color palette reminded me of the biggest animal in the world: the Blue Whale. It was quite interesting, trying to create shadows by mixing only two colors. During these trying times, it's important to be like the whale and remember to rise to the surface.

The closed, injured eyes on top show pain in the world pushed to the back of our mind. One heart lip carries love, the other, broken, carries hate.

    Cash Guts and Scarlett Jarvis, 7th Grade, TOPS K-8, "Frozen in Focus", Photography

    Student ArtworkI've always really liked animals, so when we first started to work on the scratch board I knew that I wanted some animal to be represented in my piece. I based my piece off of a photo I had seen of the two elephants, the gesture of how their trunks were entwined making me think of two people holding hands. From there I ended up expanding the image to be something that I wanted to convey peace and calmness adding the patterns and sunset background.
