Attending The Mississippi School of Arts is not only an opportunity, but a privilege. Working with a large network of alumni and former students that have similar passions in life, can keep me motivated to do art. Having a community of artist around will help me to stay productive and creative. Surrounding myself with other artist can lead to new ideas, constructive criticism, and a great camaraderie with classmates. I want to be able to attend workshops and lectures, meet with visiting artist, and participate in extracurricular activities that bring me in contact with other artist. By the time I graduate, I hope to have an the opportunity to meet with numerous individuals in the art and design world. These connections can help me lead to art
In addition to an enthusiastic attitude I would bring to the position strong communication skills, and the ability to encourage others to work cooperatively within the department. My Graphic Arts training and experience will help me work with staff artists, and provide me with a understanding of the visual aspects of you
While leafing through Julia Cameron 's "Artist 's Way," I always find myself thinking back to the first time the night pages came to me. It wasn 't one of those "It was a dark and stormy night" type of ideas, but I decided, "Why just write in the morning when I can do it at night?" Let me explain: In Julia Cameron 's "The Artist 's Way" you do a lot of things that are intended to inspire your creativity, foremost being getting up a bit earlier in the morning and writing out three pages. It can be called a journal, but mine was always much different than a journal. I tended to skip ahead in the writing of it, reminiscing on things that had happened to me in the past, and ideas for stories. I would also repeat myself constantly just to fill up those darn pages. A writer will need discipline, and Julia Cameron taught me to find it within myself. There was no great novel on the backburner - writing was a hard profession. But back to the discussion; the night pages idea came to me because getting up earlier in the morning can be hard for some. The purpose of it is to inspire creativity, but who can be creative that early in the morning? I found that I got most of my ideas running around at night anyways. So I began to write, and I stopped repeating myself. I found the night pages made me a different writer. It still can be hard for a writer to continue to write at night; you just might be tired then, too. Yet writing at night can be very productive; I found ideas for novels
When I was younger, my dad and I used to go on dates to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Although I haven’t been there for over five years now, I still remember one piece of art that took my breath away; not because of the beauty of the artwork, but because of the shiver it sent down my spine, and the uneasy feeling I had when I looked at it. The piece of art that made me so apprehensive was a wax model of a museum security guard. The intricate detail of the figure, including the pores in the skin and the hair on the knuckles, left me wondering if this man were going to suddenly leap forward and yell, “Gotcha!”
I lacked self-confidence as an artist, negatively affecting my two Creative Media courses – Making Art and Making Art: Studio – and found myself unengaged by my professor’s teaching methods in Introduction to Psychology. Realizing that there was very little chance of my salvaging my Rhetoric of Community and Psychology grades (and after reaching out to Professor Kelly Thomas, my Rhetoric professor), I devoted myself to my other courses – Art History, Concepts of Community, and Making Art. I had several discussions with my Making Art professor, Stella Marrs, about my standing in her class, my plans going forward, and possible improvements I could make for next semester. She gave me several suggestions, most of which I agreed with, and which I fully intend to follow up
The day had finally came, it was July 21st, 2020. I had been waiting for this day for what seemed like forever! I was beyond excited that of all artists, I was chosen to escort the Interplanetary Ambassador around our world and culture. Once I greeted him at the New York Space Port, I decided to take him to our very own Metropolitan Museum of Art located here in NYC. The ride from the space port to the Museum was a little over two hours and felt like forever. On the way there the Ambassador asked many questions about our clothes, food, money, and many of our everyday things that are around us. Then, out of nowhere he asked me a question that changed my life as an artist completely. He said, “In my planet we have clothes and money and everything that you humans have, but we do not have art. Can you please explain to me what this art thing is?”
How do I expect my education at The Art Institute to help me attain my goals? My education at The Art Institute can help me attain my goals of entering the music industry and impacting society through production. As a musician I feel a high love for music. Music without a certification will not pervade me as an education with certification would.
My school is an academy that focuses on two of the major intelligence groups. The goal of this school is to give people the specific training and education needed to be more successful with their future endeavors. My school’s name is The NYC Fine Arts Academy. It is located in New York City, New York. It’s located there because people typically go to New York to make their dreams come true. My school focuses on the musical and language intelligences.
Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.” During my past career as an art teacher at Intel Academy, introducing and demonstrating aesthetic techniques and materials have thrilled me as much as completing an art piece. Through workshops and demonstrations, I learned how to communicate and suggest better ways of developing their ideas and expressions. Some children had difficulties encountering art due to their behavioral problems; however, respecting their accomplishments and encouraging their process of following the curriculum became a part of the solution. My decision to apply to masters program in art education was pursued as I faced these
It was my first day as a senior in high school, I went to the guidance councilor to have my schedule fixed, I had no clue what “business intern” was. As I sat waiting I thought of other classes I wanted to swap, or questions I could ask about college applications. The air was cold, stagnant, and smelled like a cinnamon holiday candle. The smell burned my nose and I became the most impatient person in the room. There she was, walking down the hall shuffling through papers, the sound alone made me more nervous than a presentation. “Mrs. Keeler” I said, probably surprising her – usually students aren’t there to change schedules until the end of the week – “Can I
Abeka academy (non-accredited) has been wonderful for our family. When we started with Abeka, I had no idea it was going to be one of the hardest years of my life. I am so glad we chose it, and I felt it was the Lords leading, but now it is time to make some changes. We have needed to have a pretty rigid schedule this year. I know some people feel they can relax with Abeka, but for our family we felt constricted. We love schedules, but don't like feeling like we are being suffocated by our curriculum.
“I don’t think of myself as an artist, I really don’t. I think i’m more of a facilitator, I think I’m more of a guide, a coach. I give you machines, I introduce you to tools on the machine, and I give you opportunities to do things with what you know about that machine. That’s my gig. That’s my job.” He would state passionately, his voice stern while retaining a calm undertone. Mr. David Holicky isn’t a teacher, he’s a coach teaching students who have grew accustomed to being taught what to do from Step A to Z, letting their artistic skill be their guide rather than showcasing what it would look like. Each of the 42 students, split evenly between Holicky and Sellers feel the comforting vibe the room brings. It’s different than a normal room some have grown use to, Metallica and AC DC along the walls with
Me too, Hugh, me too! And yet, here it is again, rearing it's ugly head as I started thinking about upcoming auditions. However, I just realized that perhaps it is that resistance which Steven Pressfield talks about in his book, The War of Art. Yes! That must be it. I was riding the tailwind of that creative flow just yesterday while working on Puck, and now I'm feeling the resistance that always accompanies the pursuit of any artistic endeavor, according to Mr. Pressfield. Whew! I feel so much better.
My second artist was, Yayoi Kusama. In her images, she uses a lot of color and covers everything with black or white dots. To create my image, I used black acrylic paint to create the penguin and then covered it with white dots. Because this project has to be black and white, I was not able to make it bright and colorful like Yayoi Kusama would have.
"Brand new school, brand new records, brand new everything." Said Jeremy the security guard. He 's been a guard for high schools for about twelve years now, and he 's seen a lot over the years, and he was positive he could handle anything after spring break of 2012. He still had claw marks on his hands from the cats. His guard mate, Nathaniel, grunted in response. "Yeah, new kids, new technology, new pranks." He was apparently not as excited for the school as Jeremy was. It was upsetting to Jeremy; he had been looking forward to the job for a while. He hated his last job, for the kids there were not raised the same as the kids here. Its only been a day and he already made friends with a couple of the Drama students. This was a Fine Arts school, after all. “I’m going to go walk around a bit,” Nathaniel concluded. He must have known he struck a nerve.
