My art shows that even if someone looks happy all the time, they aren’t. You just need to look deeper not just see what you want to.
When the world can be yours, art projects allowed the creators of these projects to use visual, logical, and social-interpersonal learning styles to capture the attention of the Ramona High School students and, more importantly, to promote Mental Health dialogue among one another.
This Art Project required a great deal of internal reflection and dialogue to consider how to voice the concerns of our RAMS and how to reassure others that it’s truly okay to ask for help.
“Rosalind Franklin was a woman who made exceptional contributions to the discovery of the double-helical structure of DNA. Her utilization of X-ray crystallography was arguably the most important key regarding the discovery, however, for a long time, she received little acknowledgement despite her efforts. Two scientists researching the topic became aware of the structure and published their realizations – Franklin was scarcely mentioned in their work. The scientists would go on to receive a Nobel prize for their discovery, while people debated whether Franklin would have received the Nobel prize if she were alive. Although her contributions are more well known, she was never alive to witness the fruits of her labor, teaching us the importance of discussing sexism in STEM.”
