Inspired Abstractions

Who inspires you?
We were inspired by the works of Jacob Lawrence. He saw beauty and honor in the hardworking people of his New York City neighborhood of Harlem. We thought about the hardworking people that we know and were inspired by what they do for us and others. Third grade students abstracted figures to create simplified shapes and used Lawrence's palette of mostly primary colors and neutrals.
