Photo Description:
This series is called 'Suburban Dream' and is looking into the way children view suburbia through their artwork. Lexi Johnston sat six children down at a table with art supplies and blank paper and gave them one word - 'Suburbia'. The kids were given fifteen minutes to draw what Suburbia meant to them. Every child drew something different, based on their family background, one family only had a Mother. The way children depict things is so interesting because they are still new to the world and are still figuring things out.
