Makena Guthrie is a fifth grade student at Wilder. Here is what she wrote about her artwork:
“This metal wire piece is about a plant and it’s leaves and petals. In my artwork my plant is growing and blooming; the first swirl is a sign of spring. Growth is happening all around and each plant is different.
I loved making my piece because when I stepped back to look at it, it looked alive (even though I had band aids on my fingers from poking them with wire!)
As as artist, I am me and my artwork always has me in it. I am creative and love everything I do!”
