Did you enjoy this project? Yes, it was a new experience for me because it was my first mixed media piece with paint and collage. I really enjoyed it.
About: Education can be almost synonymous with freedom because restricting somebody from reaching their full potential through learning can be equivalent to enslaving them. This piece focuses on the need for us to learn about history, as well as to learn from it, and to use and expand that knowledge to follow a new road towards freedom. A New Road centers on a boy learning from and remembering his past, and preparing to step out of the shadows that follow him and into the light.
