I saw on the school news that these kids noticed that chewing gum on the street was bad because people could step foot in it. yuck! So they gestured to put the chewing gum on. After that, they made colorful skateboard wheels! From there, I think if I find things that can be reused, I can make them into party decor or decorations! This solves a problem by reusing items and so other people can create their own decorations instead of buying a new one from the store and save money. You can save money by not wasting gas and just buying the supplies!

Art can make people happy. I think being sad is a problem, so art could lift people’s spirits. The art could also be used in a form of peaceful protest.
