Heroes come in many shapes and sizes. From family members to comic book vigilantes, we all have someone we look up to. Think of a moment during the pandemic where you experienced or witnessed heroism of some kind. How did it feel? Who or what was the hero? Take time to illustrate someone who is a hero.
- Choose your hero—your hero does not have to be a real-life person, but they can be. What’s important is that you choose someone or something that has had a meaningful impact on your life during recent events.
- Draw or paint your hero, but do not draw an exact representation of your hero. Focus instead on attributes that make them heroic to you — such as having strength, courage, moral integrity, and determination; or being helpful, honest, inspirational, self-sacrificing or selfless. Try to add context or a narrative to the drawing. For example, if your hero were someone who saved you from drowning, draw the act of that person saving you rather than just a portrait.
