Lilia - 10th grade
Final Exploration - Virtual Field Trip for World History Honors Course
Lilia had chosen to create this painting off of what she had learned in the National Women's History Museum. The painting you see is a current figure in a museum that has and is still making history, Malala Yousafzai. In the piece that she had created, she wanted to not only show what she looks like, but also what she has done. The art medium she used was water color for her face, hair, stems of the flowers, pen for the writing and lastly, real rose petals cut out to make her headdress. The writing surrounding her are all things she has said that stood out to her. Most of them represent one of her main missions, " To give all girls education, and a a chance to grow up to who they want to be" ; Hence the flowers, they are growing and blooming. All in all, Lilia feels she is an inspiring and amazing woman of history!
