dc.description.abstract As an educator specializing in primary grades (kindergarten through third grade) where art is emphasized as being a crucial component to students' development, especially through creative freedom, I pose the question, "Why do we stop taking part in art as adults?" I believe it is important for adults to keep valuing art and creating pieces of artwork regardless of the daily grind of the real world. Therefore, even while I was focused on student teaching during my final semester as an undergraduate at Ball State University, I created three pieces of artwork revolving around aspects of education. One piece showcases my own experiences as an educator and the other two revolve around social and political facets facing education. In addition to creating these pieces, I also presented my artwork at the Indiana State Teachers Association's Representative Assembly (1STA RA). This artist's statement explains the process and inspiration of my artwork, as well as the presentation outcomes from the 1STA RA.
