Your Answers: How would you represent the Earth in a piece of art?

Last week we met environmental artist Mira Lehr. Then we asked you to tell us about;  how would you represent the Earth in a piece of art? Bonus points if you submit your artwork with your answer!

"I would represent the Earth by making a model and show what happens to the Earth."

- Avery from New Bremen Elementary School in New Bremen

"I would represent the world with the good and bad. In Earth, we have polluted water and freshwater so I put two different colors for the water. There is smoke from factories, that is polluting our air, so I put smoke on the top of the picture. There is good and bad storms so I put two different colored clouds. Lastly, people cut down too many trees so I put the two big trees to show both halves of the world trying to plant more trees. The little sprouts show the amount of trees slowly fading. That’s what I did to represent the Earth."

- Emma from Redwood Elementary School in Avin Lake

"I would make an earth and split it into two different halves. One showing a clean nice earth. This would consist of solar panels, wind turbines, people recycling, and animals. The other showing a polluted and dirty earth. This would consist of people littering, trees getting cut down, and pollution."

-  Anna from East Woods Intermediate

"I would take pictures of the Earth with plastic or garbage to tell people to not throw their plastic in the garbage and recycle it."

- Wyatt from Fayetteville Perry Middle School in Fayetteville

"I would use plastic bottles to produce art by helping the Earth and turn the trash into something beautiful."

- Ben from Roosevelt Elementary School in Lakewood
