|The National Winner of the Doodle for Google Contest|
This years theme was “What Makes Me… Me.” As I looked at the winning drawings I thought what a great idea. I also thought it would be great to pair it with a writing. This was what Akilah Johnson had to say about her drawing. The quote she connects with her drawing is ‘Be the type of person [who] not only turns heads, but turns souls.’
I thought about what she drew and why she included each symbol. Then I tried to deconstruct her work so that other students would have some guidelines.
- 6 symbols
- people of influence
- heritage/cultural influences
This young woman created an amazing piece of art. I'm guessing we may be hearing more from her in the future.
