“Showing the struggle of mental health issues and how it consumes us and society. We look fine on the outside but many of us are struggling mentally within.

ARTIST BIO: Asheton Hannah is a Grade 12 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.
