As an artist, there are many important things I consider. I think about every little component and detail of a piece and how it will affect the overall outcome. As well as what were the choices and traits that were used by other well-known artists. When it comes to art, the decisions made by the artist are as important as the subject or the medium, and his choices are more useful tools than his brush or his pencil. I believe that how a piece is received is more important than what it stands for. Art needs to connect to the audience above all, if it going to portray anything.
I’ve learned a lot through the summer In the Making Printmaking
course. This includes print styles and techniques, but even more about art in general and as a career. Besides learning how to use linoleum blocks and silkscreen, I learned about portfolios, resumes, and scholarships. We visited the International Print Center, Booklyn, and Two Palms Press, where I saw the importance of artist unions, galleries, and the relationship between an artist and a printer. I’ve learned a lot and really had a great time here at the MoMA.
