My STEAM Project was on how mothers and babies benefit from this natural process, breast feeding. I really enjoyed learning about lactation and how important it was for children, but thought it would be interesting to learn how mothers benefit from this experience as well. I discuss how essential breast feeding is for babies, as it starts new babies with strong and healthy immune systems that will continue to protect and promote healthy lifestyles throughout their years. Mothers, although it may not seem obvious also have wonderful health benefits from breast feeding their children, as well as the great bond they grow with each other. For my art piece, because my topic was mother and child, I wanted to find something that was already an important figure to represent them. I chose to recreate Raphael’s famous painting, Madonna and Child. I decided to place the benefits of breast feeding in words outlining the mother and child. The mother is tenderly holding her child the main focus of the art piece because the paper is based on them and all of the benefits they both receive.
