by Claire, Main Library Teen Squad
Hi, my name is Claire and I am a Teen Squad volunteer this year at the Main Library.
I have created a virtual gallery that anyone in grades 6th-12th can submit photography, writing, paintings, or art of any kind. There are a handful of topics to help inspire your submission, or you can submit something that doesn’t relate to the topics at all.
A piece I’d like to highlight from the month of December is a painting by Ryen.
Here is what Ryen said about their painting:
“My art centers around the topic of unidentified bodies and giving a spotlight to these people who are often left ignored and unwanted even after death. I work to spread awareness about this trend and hope that eventually nobody will go unidentified.”
You can find future and past blog posts with updates about this project here on City Library Teens, and a full description of the project on this blog's Teen Squad page.
If you are interested in submitting, please fill out this Google Form.
And finally, if you want to see all the submissions that we get, you can find the gallery here.
