My project showed children reading to learn about the MRI and to relieve their stress. I was inspired to do this project because it relates teaching and nursing to art, which are two studies that interest me. I am satisfied that my art portrays the messages of children reading to decrease stress and anxiety. My project was composed of mixed media. I used construction paper for the faces and book then raised some of the faces with foam board. Blue tissue paper was used for the background. The children's faces are angled toward the book as if they were reading it.
