In my time in Fine Arts I feel one of the most important things I learned was collaboration. I learned to see things through the eyes of other artists outside my own art form and this led me to think in different ways than I normally would. It also showed me the value of collaboration. When you work in a team you have access to every person’s skill set and if you do it right you can create something really beautiful. Being in Fine Arts showed me that and I’m so thankful. I want this Capstone to not only show revival of the arts but to be a tribute to our class and the journey we have been on together. Our final collaboration to show how far we have come in our artistic journey.
In this Capstone I will be doing the project design on a digital program which is something I have never done. I think this will push my personal skills and knowledge. We, as a team, are also having to do something that involves a lot of planning and help outside of our class so I think learning to navigate that will be a challenge. Also learning how we work and what each of us can bring to the table. We are also doing a sculpture piece in a new medium so learning how that works and trying something outside our skill sets will require a lot of creativity and patience.
My work is unique because I love to take the more colorful, bubbly route when it comes to making art rather than go super realistic. I feel that this will be good for our project because we will be working with a lot of different colors. I also do a lot of abstract work and have some past experience with sculpture. I’m really enthusiastic about our piece because I feel that my skills will be useful and reflected in the final product. In my future I want to be a full time artist in one way or another. Although I prefer to work alone I think that working in a group like this will help set me up to be better with jobs that may involve collaboration. I want to be a teacher and that involves a lot of planning and group work and I know this project is beneficial towards that goal. I also think that working with a new media like glass will be good because I am a mixed media artist and I love adding new skill sets to my arsenal.
