Hey all you art people, once again I am writing a small journal to inform you guys whats up and whats not. This week I will be attending Art All State where a bunch of my artistic peers and I will be locked into a museum room for the entire day with unlimited art supplies and a goal to create instillation to fill the the room. No electronics ( I will snag some pictures don't worry ). I am so excited that I powered through twenty pages of my sketchbook and painted all of my art trading cards to make sure my art skills were perfectly toned. If any of you are attending, I will see you there!
End of the year is fast approaching! But worry not! I have finished five of my concentration pieces and am starting my sixth next week. That means I only need six more by the end of next year to qualify for the AP portfolio! My teacher has been letting me do what ever I want, really, because so far I am the only student that has been completing the assignments. Also I am way ahead of schedule. And that makes me happy because that means I can doodle and create what ever I want after I finish.
My concentration is a simple idea, but put on a large scale. The idea is to paint events in my life that have contributed to creating who I am today. For example one of my paintings is of me picking up a real novel for the first time. But I spiced it up a bit so it looks like a clock and it goes through the day as I read it, and the background is a swirl of the sky and flowers. It sounds strange but it would make sense if you saw it. All of my concentration is done with water colors, and at least two feet tall by a foot wide, but it does vary.
Counting the days! 15 school days until this little artist is a Senior! Wow college is coming soon! Keep your fingers crossed people cause I'm going for the ivy-leagues of all art colleges! This list includes Calarts, RISD, VCU, Ringling, Massart, Lesley, The Art Institute, MECA, Pratt....if you guys have any suggestions to any other art colleges that I might be missing out on, I'd love to hear it! All areas of the US are acceptable and size and tuition does not matter (for now haha)
New Obsession : PLANTS! I have suddenly become very attached to foliage.
