There are a couple of things that I think are important to me as an artist. Patience, inspiration and sometimes messages are important,
the way you express yourself. Many art pieces take a while to complete, my vision always changes. Sometimes the longer it takes to create a piece the more patience you need. It’s all worth in the end. I like to express myself through colors and words. I’ve seen a lot of different art ideas while attending this program. On a trip we visited a company named Booklyn. There I saw that there are places out there where artists support each other instead of depending on galleries. I also learned that if you look hard enough there are also a couple non profit organizations out there that really want to help kids and adults with their art dream. The International Printing Center is an example of a non profit organization. In the printmaking class I learned from my teachers Anette and Erica that there is no such thing as a mistake when printing, just make it your own. Attending MoMA’s Printmaking class was a great experience.
I hope to continue working with MoMA in the future.
