The collaborative nature of the award winning ‘make your mark’ art piece is grounded in the principle of cultural equality and togetherness of class or creed. Each individual mark on the canvas is like a personal signature of the mark maker’s individualism. Yet, when the painting is viewed as a whole, that individual mark becomes part of a shared vision and humanity.
With the make your mark piece I aim to create a bridge towards understanding others as well as ourselves. To become comfortable with the creation of art and a vital step towards a healthy, tolerant consciousness and to appreciate each other’s differences. Every coloured mark on the canvas has an important and special role to play in the creation of the art piece.
Diversity is about all of us, and about us having to figure out how to walk through this world together - Jacqueline Woodson.
