Grocery Shopping – 03

In Spring 2021, Richmond Food Stories collaborated with students from McKay Elementary’s Grade 6/7 classes to create an art work series for “Eating in the Time of COVID-19.” By engaging students to reflect on pandemic experiences through art, each young artist produced a unique illustration in response to the following prompts: How have you celebrated special occasions during COVID-19? What was it like to go grocery shopping when the pandemic first started? How has home cooking and eating changed for your family since the pandemic?

I made this piece because it represents how I felt during Covid – angry and frustrated. This connects to my experience with Covid because it shows how boring and annoying it was waiting in line. A lot of times I got so mad that I had to go away from the store because of how mad I was which was able to help me and I cooled down.
