Jordan from Bayshore Christian Academy created this portrait and reflected on the experience:
How did it feel to spend so much time observing a photograph and then making art based on the photo?
It was definitely a new experience. I have never done anything like that before! It was fun and emotional at times, and I felt connected to the unknown victims.
What did you like and dislike about the art experience?
I loved all of the art and being able to draw the portrait, but pastel is definitely messy! I think my fingers are permanently black now.
What do you think you will remember about this experience? Why?
I think I’ll remember my pastel drawing the most. It was saddening to think that millions of people have been forgotten or remained unidentified.
