I grew up alongside the wild Rocky Mountain Columbines, where the air is crisp and the winters are long. I spent my time engaging in the arts such as acting, writing, and creating. From a young age I was drawn to the world of imagination and found happiness through producing art. We all face and over come challenges within our lives and whenever I am faced with hardship I find comfort in visually expressing myself.
After taking an acting and theater class in my current college, I found a new passion for the theater arts. This led me to taking more classes at my school and performing in plays, and as an extra in television shows. I was recommended the USC School of Dramatic Arts by a teacher, because of how good I was in the craft and my excitement to be a part in the creation of theater. The School has a history of great performers, and directors that I want to follow in their footsteps. This includes my personal hero George Lucas, who has changed my life for the better in so many ways. His creation of Star Wars, Red Tails, and Indiana Jones affected how I saw the world and my aspirations. I want to learn about theater and become an actor and create the same fun and excitement that I enjoy everyday, and touch the hearts and lives of other people.
We all go through the “dream stage”, but is it so that they are even meant to come across our minds during our slumber? Dreams are simply desires that certain people have a big hope to one day to actually experience their destinies and thoughts. Although reveries are recurrent, Langston Hughes and Zora Neale Hurston vividly contrasts the type of dreams people have and how they accomplish them. The determination in the 1920s set off success in the African American culture leading people to look past the limit and keep going. In “Freedom’s Plow” , Hughes believes dreams are set and fulfilled through unity, but on the other side of the grass Zora Neale Hurston in her piece, “Their Eyes Were Watching God”, she perceives that dreams are asymmetrical and are not
Growing up I was always fascinated by history. I like to imagine my love of history was passed on to me by my grandmother who was both a history major and a history teacher; however, I was never able to genuinely connect with her since she had already passed years before I was born. No matter the case, I reciprocated her passion. I decided that I wanted to pursue a career that involved a more hands on approach appertaining to history aside from teaching. Therefore, I concluded I wanted to ultimately work in a museum. An opportunity to shadow a museum director, a position I hope to be in one day, truly exposed me to that specific environment and sealed my determination like never before in regards to my future.
I am writing to apply for graduate program at New York University to study Art Education to start a step to become an art teacher. I consider education as an essential guidance and instruction in assorted knowledge, skills, and history. Especially in art, there are many concepts, materials, and practices in relation to art history. The art history is still ongoing where fine art has made its transition to contemporary art. Based on the professional art education from my undergraduate program and the past work experiences in art environment, I find myself responsible to inspire and teach students different aspects that art retains. This passionate nature has led me to apply for masters program in Art Education. I believe that New York University will advise virtuous and exceptional curricula for me to gain professional attributes as an art educator.
If I were to point out an academic subject that inspires me, it would be photography. To me, photography has become something I’m very passionate about that I’ve developed from the classroom. At first, I had taken photography in order to college requirements out of the way, however; I grew to appreciate the subject much more than I had expected. This was because I found photography very engaging and fun, and that I had a way to creatively express myself. Inside the classroom, I developed the skills and knowledge necessary for the subject. Outside of photography class, the subject evolved into side hobby I enjoy putting time into during my spare time. I’ve even considered at one point becoming a professional photographer as a future career.

Dreams Not In Sleep Dreams and thoughts do not only occur in our sleep. They can happen day or night, and sometimes play tricks on our mind. In the poem, “Dreams Not Accompanied” by Sleep by M.Bree, discusses dreams and the abstract ideas that they can figuratively be. M. Bree strategically utilizes symbolism, irony, and metaphor in “Dreams Not Accompanied by Sleep” to debate how dreams can also be: thoughts, memories, things we hear, conscious dreams, sleeping dreams, or even abstract objects.
For as long as I can remember I have always been dedicated to make my dreams possible. I was so determined to make my dreams happen that at the young age of ten I began taking sewing lessons. A year after that my parents signed me up for summer art workshops. At first I was horrible at drawing, but as time passed and as I got older I got very good. At the age of fourteen I got so talented that my art teacher started entering me into local and national art contests. I won many awards including The Scholastic Art Award , Brain-Art Competition, Wrecks Of The World Art, and many local art competitions. It 's crazy
During my childhood years, my neighborhood surroundings influenced me to become an artist. The way I look at life is I see myself as a leader who will accomplish my goals and make a difference in people’s lives. The person who influenced me the most to become an artist was my late uncle. My uncle was an artist who worked in New York City. I remember the first time my mother showed me his work and was astonished by his drawing skills. He was a very talented artist. After seeing his work, I had a strong desire to become a graphic designer.
I am highly interested in art since I was little. I always draw on blank papers or draft papers, and then put colors on them to make them seem more realistic. As I grow up, I start to get in touch with some completely different art styles. I discovered that I liked animate characters, and start sketching my own ones based on my story setting. When I am now in high school, I take graphic design classes, and realized that graphic design is a very compelling course. It teaches me a variety of different art
When looking at the effects of arts programs, it is crucial to look at the effects the arts have had specifically on at-risk teens and young adults. While the arts are an all-encompassing field, at-risk teens and young adults are impacted especially by music, and the positive outcomes of their fruitful endeavors prove to assist them academically as well. James S. Catterall, University of California Los Angeles with Susan A. Dumais, Louisiana State University and Gillian Hampden-Thompson, University of York, U.K. wrote a report for the National Endowment for the Arts that detailed many different aftereffects of at-risks students who were involved in arts programs. Of the low-SES (socioeconomic status) students they studied, they found that low-SES
Ever Since I was a little girl, I dreamt of becoming a skilled artist and seeing the world to uncover the mysteries that ancient artists had to tell. Art has always been a huge part of my life ever since I first held a crayon in my hand. From redrawing characters from
Art. To me is something undefinable, what I want my art to show you is a piece of myself and a piece of yourself. Something we can all relate to; a memory, a song, a poem, art should make you feel something. Art is a gift, a tool we can use to hide beauty in ordinary places and things. I want to broaden my understanding of design and the world that art is beyond my knowledge and experiences. Because my love for creating burns so bright and deep within me, I am determined to find a career path that will allow me to explore the world of design and art every day. A number of art forms are endless and this seems like a daunting task to find just one path that can express the enjoyment and involvement I want to have with art. Throughout my life I have been endlessly drawing, painting, sculpting and creating--often times I feel almost cursed with such talent to create because the ability seems endless. I have taken a number of art classes exploring my passions as a High School Student and created many different types of works including oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings; etching, embossed, and screen printmaking; charcoal, graphite, and pastel drawings; Sculpting with ceramics and plaster as well as wheel pieces. I find that there is few mediums I have yet to experiment with. I have become accustomed to Acrylic paintings as I have recently started to create paintings and sell them to community members. I participated in a local art fair and it opened my eyes to what art
