Back in September, when we first met, we discussed what it meant to be an artist and what an artist needs to be creative. We played around with materials and explored a variety of ways to make art. Halfway through the course we paused to consider why people make art in the first place and you thought deeply about what makes you unique and what you have to say through art.
Now, as we say goodbye at the end of the course, what is the story of your year as an artist? If you were to imagine your experience in this class as a story, a comic strip, a reality tv show, the highlight reel...how did it start? What were the ups and downs along the way? What images, stories, or moments come to mind?
And, most importantly, how does it end? How will art play a role in your life going forward, if at all? How can you envision what you learned in Art Principles this year showing up again in school and in life?
