A few weeks ago my students and I were inspired by the artist Norval Morisseau (1931 - 2007). My students were looking into the symbolism of animals in legends in Woodland art and other traditions. One of my students last year lost her brother and I knew the family thought of him every time they saw a dragonfly. When I left the school she gave me a bracelet containing a dragonfly and her note said dragonflies symbolized change and transformation. Dragonflies also have the ability for swift movements and response to change. Naturally, when we enlisted my former colleague Michelle Ciarloni to make our logo for EdCampHALTON 2017 I asked her if she could incorporate dragonflies. She of course exceeded anything I could've ever come up with and made this beautiful artwork for our event! We hope you can join us!
