“For all who don’t know, in the past couple of years, we, the people, experienced a big protest in what is right for the people of our country. The main goal in this picture was to capture an image and what this really means. The word resilience is a meaning of being able to recover from difficulties and toughness which is the emotion and theme of this image. This is only coming “With Time”.”
ARTIST BIO: Aiden Billiter is a Grade 11 student at Princeton High School.
PROJECT: Photography students were challenged by art teacher Lindsey Holliday to create imagery based on their own personal passion or connection to themes of Peace and Social Justice in regards to Equality and Equity. Students viewed and discussed the Equality/ Equity Illustration, Bisa Butler’s The Safety Patrol quilt, Shepard Fairey’s American Rage poster, and Frank Willis Thomas’ Branded photograph. They also viewed the series published by Amplifier Art, 12 Conversations Seek Common Ground. Students were encouraged to develop their ideas in a plan and create their artwork using media and techniques of their choice.
