Student: Katherine Kenner
Grade: 8th Grade
School: Central Middle School, Devils Lake, ND.

Artist's Statement
"I like a quote from the Dalai Lama, who said, "Without love we could not survive. Human beings are social creatures, and a concern for each others is the very basis of our life together." To me, that means we need to look out for each other, and we need to care for each other. Even walking down the hallways, we have to be kind to each other. We all share the same goals, and we have to help each other.

Title: "Hands Forming Butterflies"
Student: Katherine Kenner and Joanna Beckstrand
Ages: 13
School: Central Middle School, Devils Lake, ND.
Class: Prime Time/English

Title: "Arms Linked Around Each Other"
Student: Jessica Thomas
Age: 14
School: Central Middle School, Devils Lake, ND.
Class: Prime Time/English
Instructor: Teresa Tande

Artist's Statement
"Coexistence to me means having every race and every nationality together in unity. The way I showed coexistence is the circle where they are all together like the colors of the rainbow."
 

Title: "Dictionaries and the Cage"
Student: James Nystrom
Age: 14
School: Devils Lake Central Middle School, North Dakota
Class: Prime Time/English
Instructor: Teresa Tande

Artist's Statement
"Coexistence means getting along not just in actions but also in words. That's why I chose the dictionary because it is full of words but we have to be careful how we use those words so we don't use words of hate or thinking we're better than someone else. That's why I have the book CAGE which is about a girl in the Holocaust(I didn't read it but a classmate told me about it.)"
