    Thank you for submitting these - a great example to others! If one of yours is pictured above, could you tell us what concepts it is representing and your thinking behind it?

    My represents justice.This is because Boris Johnson is doing anything in parliament.This had been the case when he closed parliament for weeks. The people deserve a better leader that is committed to them and their needs.This also shows a hint a democracy because the people are allowed to have a better leader is they try to get impeachment into England.

    Mine (giving_orangutan) and cheerful_photograph's post is all about Social Media. Social Media is a big factor for expressing your views all around the world. A lot of politicians around the world express their views on Social Media like Donald Trump who is active on twitter, most politicians will read their followers comment or post and will like it if they do. A lot of followers express their views on things that are happening in the political world. Overall the media is a great way to express your views and is also an amazing way to be active with politicians.

    My art piece is the 5th one which is about how social media affects the world of Politics. The media decides the fate of a party or politician because they must be voted in by the people. Some of the symbols around the title represents the different points of view and how they are being shared. Other symbols are about the people and politicians and what they do to affect Politics. First, I will explain some of the facts in more depth.

    Fact 1: In Parliament, politicians have to say the right things or they might be voted out of their constituency. If a politician stands up to speak in Parliament, they must think of what they are going to say before they end up getting into trouble. If people in their constituency hear about this, they will not be pleased and may not vote them in. This will mean that they will remain as a politician but not one who represents a community in Parliament.

    Fact 2: Social Media can affect people’s points of view on: Politics, Leaders and many other things. The media has many sources of which many can be propaganda (a fake interpretation of a thing or human) so people must make sure everything they are hearing is true before making a decision to share this because it may end up becoming a chain and offending people because it is not true. If they are campaigning in an election or any other referendum things on Social Media can affect their reputation.

    Fact 3: The public may get into trouble if they use the wrong language towards politicians. Politicians are humans like us so being disrespectful to them does not mean it is less harmful to them than us. So, we must always treat them like how we would be wanted to be treated ourselves whatever they are doing or what they have done in the past.

    Now I will explain some of the symbols.

    Twitter Symbol: I have chosen the Twitter bird because it is one of the most used social media applications in the world. If you want to check up with the news, it is the place to go.
    Two People forming an idea: Two minds are better than one and if they express their opinion it would be more diverse and mor people would agree to whatever they say.
    A Yellow Man exclaiming: This reminds me of the Yellow Umbrella protests by the people in 2014. Social Media is a great way to express your views in a mannerly way.
    All Dots that are connected: This shows how one message can follow on and on to create something like a paper chain where an idea gets across to another in a different way.
    This is my explanation of my Artwork for Social Media.

    These explanations look great everyone. Keep them coming and I think all of our artwork deserves stars after my classroom was an explosion of glitter, paint and glue

    Mine was the first one and I was trying to imply the battle between Trump and the citizens of the United States of America since many have protests against him and he's just hanging on the position of president because of his party.

    (Edited) Mine was the first one and I was trying to imply the battle between Donald Trump and the citizens of United States of America since there have been many protests and he is hanging on to the position of President because of his party. Me making him larger than the citizens implies his power.

    Mine is still not on there but I made a collage with pictures of leaders from various different parties and depicted them by showing a certain trait a leader should have based on whether I think they have that trait or not.
