When this crisis began, we found it fairly easy for us to fall back into homeschool. Barrett has used art as a beautiful tool to express so many feelings throughout his life, and this piece was inspired by how he feels about being holed up with his family. He has fond memories of how close he is to his siblings, and for him, remembering that comradeship is foundational for how he manages the stress of the world shutting down around him.
Barrett started meditating at a young age, and transfers his inner peace into art, where focus on positive realities is key to finding joy in what is. While some of his art is melancholy when dealing with grief or loss, he likes to reach for memories to remind himself of how lucky he is to have a loving family.
