Photo of Zion
Photo Captured By Noah Hawes
Meet Zion, a seven-year-old living in OTR. Zion enjoys painting, sports, and going to school. The painting on canvas captured below is titled "Mixed Feelings". While creating this work, Zion talked about how he missed his friends and the learning environment he enjoyed at school. His painting started out very dark and gloomy, which can be seen in the background colors. When he had completed this work, he decided to change his perspective with a happy take on the situation, by drawing a purple smiley face over the dark background. When asked why the painting went from sad to happy, Zion explained that he still remains positive and looks forward to going back to school.
