Fine Arts Academy Community Learning is one of the most important experiences of my life. This wonderful place taught me so much about culture, history, and the wonders of each type of art and their uniqueness and differences. I grew a lot as a person and artist; I used to be a closed-off and shy person but this community created a safe space for me where I could be open about my vulnerabilities, struggles, fears, and passions without feeling judged or ashamed. FAACL gave us a space where artists of every background could interact, collaborate and become a rich, pleasant and beautiful community. Fine Arts is all about community, collaboration, connection, and unity. This capstone will be our biggest homage to this wonderful space and a big thank you for everything. In this final collaboration, we hope to bring unity and spark a revival of arts in Harrisonburg. The idea of collaboration has always been a struggle for me, yet this project is the best opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone and create something wonderful with the rest. Because we are planning to use statistics as our main subject, it is a wonderful opportunity to reach out and learn more about our community. We are tackling a medium that no one has touched before and I am excited to see what victories and challenges present themselves along the way. Currently, I am working on keeping the budget in check and creating a decent enough budget sheet that can be informative and useful. My biggest objective is to learn something new, overcome my anxieties and fears, improve my collaboration skills, and create something wonderful that will leave a mark on the community. As a visual artist, my art is very individualistic; it often portraits my mental health issues, fears, insecurities, passions, and struggles. It is often quite personal, yet relatable for some people. My main objective is to make the viewer stop for a second and look inside their head and to make people feel. My pieces are whimsical, simplistic, symbolic, and often dark. I also like to create characters that I hope someday will be part of a comic. Even if my style doesn't relate as much to the subject of the capstone, I want to use this opportunity to branch out from my routine and explore unknown wonders. I hope to tackle new subjects, meanings, and experiences and translate them into our final product. This Capstone is really important to me. To begin with, I have never done a project or piece of such a scale, so the anticipation is thrilling. I believe that everything you do in life will leave you with a life experience, and this is not the exception. Besides learning a new medium, I will learn several things that I never thought I would learn and reinforce some that I had some experience with. For example, I never thought budgeting was something that I would enjoy doing, now I do and I will use my experiences with it in my adult life. Besides, the collaboration experience will be crucial for me; as a future teacher, having experience working with several people with different work styles and making it work will make your work more pleasant and effective. For this art piece, I have to give it my all because this piece represents us, the artists in Harrisonburg. Every single square is an artist, every single square counts.
