Game Rules: The point of the game is to defeat the Griffin. You move by rolling a die. When a player finds a token they will look on the bottom, replace it, and mark the item on the item sheet. IF a player lands next to a monster they will draw a card to see which monster will have to be fought. How to fight a monster? Choose a tool or take the damage.

Artist Statement: The architecture of the Seattle skyline is inspiring especially how the Space Needle pops. I want to show the full beauty of the city I love. I used acrylic paint, multiple canvases to add dimension. The thicker paint created the effect of a fluffier cloud.
Artist Statement: I used acrylic paint to create a colorful scene of a lake in fall, it was inspired by a picture I found. For the smaller canvas, I tried my best to use pointillism as an abstract component of my painting. This artwork was very fun to paint.
Artist Statement: When I found the photo of the flower I used in this piece, I loved the different shades of purple that blended together. I felt that the purples showed content, but bright.
Artist Statement: I had the idea to take a photo of an old phone with words coming out from it because I wanted a way to show that it’s a “call to action” and one you should not ignore.

Artist Statement: I liked the fact that the reference of the cactus had water droplets on it. I don’t actually like working with oil pastel that much and usually use pencil instead. I definitely ran into a few problems while working with oil pastel. Like getting a good solid color, or figuring out blending and how to show the water droplet. I do like the way the actual cactus turned out. I think i did a good job blending the two different greens and finding a way to show the water droplet.

Artist Statement: I used Linocut printing to show how my favorite animal the red eyed tree frog became in danger because of climate change was burning The Amazon. Each time I added a color I carved more of the block to add ink in different areas.

Artist Statement: This piece was a Black Lives Matter project for art class. I chose to focus on the guiding principle “Black Women.” It was challenging to channel my thoughts about this principle into images.
Artist Statement: This piece was inspired by illusion. It is meant to trick your mind. I hope people see that sometimes you have to look between the lines.
