    Well, if I can draw something, I will draw a boy who is not wearing a mask with his family next to him, or maybe his dearest people are injured and really tired!
    Why did you choose to draw and why am I going to paint it?
    Well, I would like to convey my message through drawing. Drawing is known to be the beautiful language of communication. Perhaps he will be a young child and not able to read, but if he sees the picture, it will become clear to him!
    And I chose this drawing so that people realize that their recklessness will kill their loved ones!
    That is, they will have to be careful, if they are injured because of their recklessness without knowing that this will lead to the killing of those who live with him!
    Therefore, they must be careful and not underestimate this virus, because it is not what they think, but it is a small killer (this organism that we can only see with the latest microscopes, in fact it is a killer that causes the death of millions of people!)

    For my street sign, I would breaking the usual pattern, and not only making banners, I want to make TV screens that show beautiful advice about the Corona virus, and also I want to make illuminated banners that write tips in a beautiful way and beautiful words, and also if I can I will do contests about information That people should know about covid 19 and I want to draw on the floor drawings taken from cartoon films that most children and people in society follow.
    My reason for this is that society is attracted to and loves these things and watching them also helps in understanding the seriousness of COVID-19

    For my street sign, I would As for the banners, I will make them filled with enthusiastic and attractive colors such as yellow, red, pink, orange and others to attract people and children and instill hope in them. The world is stronger than anything, wait, maybe tomorrow the epidemic will end, with you with us, we are assured) To reassure them and help them be patient so that we can overcome the ordeal the world is going through and also I will make the banners big too so that everyone can see them from near and far and they will be a source of hope for them. This will motivate them to think positively I will also write these words on the floor of the sidewalk, and I will hang some of these signs on the ground. Everyone uses their mobile phones and looks at the ground. I will benefit from them, and I will write these expressive words on the ground for all to see.And I will make the people and children who like the banners to design like it to hang it in the streets and write their names on it. This will make them think more positively that the epidemic will end and that life will return to normal
    My reason for this is The reason is that at the present time everyone is leaving the house afraid and cautious. If we spread these banners in the streets, we will spread hope and positive energy in them. Spence in the calm children that tomorrow will be better and better, and she tells everyone that the world is still alive and life will go on and that life It will return to normal and we will overcome this ordeal If we spread these positive ideas through banners, it will be wonderful and we will make people stronger in front of the epidemic and we will make them encourage and resist it psychologically, morally and financially.

    For my street sign, I would If I were to make a banner, I would do it in the form of a 3D screen that would talk about the instructions and the risks that would result from not following them, and I would also talk about the number of infections and deaths to take care and seriousness in the matter and deliberate tolerance in this matter because there was no real treatment that ends the virus, so I will make a banner Three dimensional
    My reason for this is Because this will draw the mind, and because the mind is the one who controls the decision of the person, this will raise their interest about the matter and show their instinct of curiosity, and this will work to publish instructions as we want and to maintain their safety and thus we will convince them that this is a dangerous virus and not a game, meaning that it has no jokes, so it must be careful caution

    Well, I'm going to make a big drawing on a big wall. It attracts a lot of people: like people who run and run in the street with fear and panic, a virus that stalks and tramples and kills those who walk on it, people standing on the sidewalk wearing masks and sanitizers and not running because they are in a safe and sound place and I will write on it (Your mask is your way for safety and survival)

    My reason for this is because then it encourages others to get vaccinated so that they can be safe and 'clean' as in they are not 'dirty' with the virus.

I will talk about a lot of information. Why didn't you wear the mask today? Don't you fear for yourself and your loved ones? Wear it. Why haven't you worn it yet? The safety of your country and your community from Covid. 19 I want to distribute my paintings, do you want to participate? Well take one from the bottom and put it on the beginning of the road and don't forget to stay wearing a mask
    My reason for this is The reason for that is that I want to preserve the safety of all of my country by means of communication, and also they will protect the country and its loved ones with my help. Everyone who sees it does so and is surprised. We can also unite to prevent the spread of the virus with the slightest thing, and the spirit of cooperation will spread

      A great idea, but I suggest that you draw it along the street wall and not in the form of their own banners. This is to attract people and children. The large and distinctive drawings in colors attract people more than the banners. How?? I will explain to you my friend!!!
      You hired writing, right, but with creativity and art, you didn't
      You wrote a dialogue between people, so what do you think that we draw colorful people in warm and attractive colors and above them the clouds of dialogue with what I wrote inside, (I now imagine what I say and I feel wonderful) along the street wall, the person passing along the road will be attracted to the entire dialogue and he did not want If he completes the road, he will complete it to finish reading
      Now what do you think after hearing my suggestion???

    Well if I could paint something, for my street sign, I would make it in catchy colors like yellow, red, pink, orange, etc., to attract people and children on Main Street in Shaftesbury, UK, ok now after talking about catchy colors I will talk about The drawing, what's her name? The idea of ​​using murals to raise awareness of the Covid-19 virus (Corona) in the United States, a very good idea, would be the drawing of a water tank and a woman washing her hands while wearing a mask, written on the wall Corona virus, under the lady's legs are gray stones, and behind the woman is a drawing A girl wearing a mask and her hair color is blue and black to attract people and children, and next to the other children are going to school and there is a child's tuberculosis far from the other A child is a meter away from the other and the children are wearing a mask, and there is a picture of the virus and its color is brown, and on the picture of the virus is an error sign that says No Corona, No Corona. If you leave the picture, you will see it as beautiful and very impressive.. The reason for that is that everyone is leaving the house nowadays with fear and caution. If we spread these signs in the streets, we will spread hope and positive energy in them. Spence tells The Quiet Children that tomorrow will be better and better, and she tells everyone that the world is still alive, life will go on, life will return to normal, and we will overcome this ordeal, for sure.

    For my street sign, I would The signs will be electronic screens displaying safety instructions and rules through short broadcasts and reassurance signs (by adhering to the rules, we will eliminate the virus “hand in hand for the sake of our health and the health of future generations” rest assured we are fine “not to fear) and be at a crossroads or near a traffic light due to parking Lots of pedestrians there
    My reason for this is The reason is that the electronic display screens are the most interesting and eye-catching signs of all shades, which harmonize pedestrians and people with their instructions, and because they are close to the eyes of people, and because they are close to buses and cars because of their proximity to the traffic light, I think that their effect on pedestrians is stronger

    commitments due to the corona virus , and I think this method will work to make people

    Because people like songs and they must abide by the procedure.

      Frankly, I do not recommend that there be pictures of people infected with the Corona virus, first: this is how we grieve people and make them disperse, so we did not advise them, but rather dread them, and second: it is possible that the infected do not agree to put their pictures, so what will you do?? This is an unreliable idea. Third: It is possible that the relatives of the patient see the picture of their relative infected with the Corona virus, so they will be very sad, and they may not focus on their way and accidents will occur, but in my opinion, the most striking thing is that the signs are in the form of famous and popular actors, for example, in the form of Bts. This will attract everyone’s attention and they will be happy to read the sign and at the end there will be words (whoever adheres to safety rules for a long time in all places, will meet his favorite actress or singer). Frankly, for me, this is a good idea because if I were in their place, I would do my best to see my favorite actor, and this is a girl’s thinking. Adult how surely the little ones will do their best.

    For my street sign, I would My banner will be an attractive, graceful, colorful banner that will attract people’s attention, which is “Prevention is better than a pound of cure.” I chose this banner because it urges us to prevent so that we do not have to treat. To reassure people that they are not afraid of the Corona virus, for example, we can put a sign such as: Together to protect ourselves from the Corona virus. And also stop, look at the world with a good look and work on preventing the Corona virus, not being afraid of it. Also, face the virus with full force. It is just a virus that we can eliminate together. Also, I have an idea that we can make songs for children because they love music very much.
    My reason for this is That way they will protect themselves

    I will write in a banner about (Covid _ 19) 1- You must adhere to the mask when you leave the house. 2- Not to touch any of the doors’ hands or shake hands. 3- Not to talk to the infected person or close with him without wearing a mask. 4- Not to cough in anyone’s face because you will transfer the infection to him, and thus it will spread very quickly. 5- Not to go to full public places or mix with infected people. 6- When you return to your home after leaving it, first, before exiting, put a sterilizer in a place near the door. Second, put a place for the exit shoes. Third, throw the mask and the conti in a basket close to the door. Then you take off the shoes and put them aside, and after that you have to wear the thing designated for the house, and then you have to sanitize your hands, and then you probably change your clothes.
    So that people are not infected with the virus significantly, while mitigating the infection, and also not putting people in embarrassing situations, and also because the virus is very, very dangerous, and the other reason, according to the graph, is to reduce the number of deaths and injuries.

        If it is a short sign, write it down. It is the most important thing that protects the person from injury. Adhere to the rules of spatial distancing, and keep a distance of two meters from others; Wash your hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds, and sanitize them with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever possible; Wear a mask and gloves when leaving the house; Learn how to use the mask safely; Avoid handshakes, kisses and cuddles; avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose, and mouth; Follow healthy behavior when coughing.

    My reason for this is Many people believe that they should not follow covid regulations because they believe they are not affecting anyone but with every one person who doesn't follow the rules, it could cause hundreds of people to contract the virus and possibly be hospitalised or even die.

However, I believe that it would be easier to do drawings on walls and sides of buildings because it would be more noticeable and it would draw in younger and older children and it would be bigger and a positive message that would make people happier and more comfortable with covid regulations. it would also allow local artists to build publicity and a good reputation.

    You must believe that this is the philosophy of life. If we want to live, we must fight. And if we want death, he does not knock on the door before entering it. Therefore, we must protect ourselves from the epidemics that may throw us into a room without windows or windows.
    Covid 19 is the biggest example of these epidemics, because it is cruel to those who throw themselves at it
    We must not give in to reality and try to avoid it by all means and methods
    This is a short period and it will be over

    For my street sign, I would have a dog wearing a mask and with a speech bubble saying 'We can get through this together!'
    My reason for this is I like this sign because it is very funny and it is motivating you to stay strong and try to be happy. I added this laughing element because if children wanted to be reading this, it wouldn't be very amusing with nothing that funny. If we had it, when people or children take a look at it, they will at least get a smile on their face or even a laugh. This is the reason why I chose the amazing street sign.
