Art makes an impression on the universe but leaves rules to abide by in the mind of an artist. The first time Ms. Zink taught her art class at Brooks DeBartolo was life changing. She inspired many of her students to bring their best effort to the drawing board. As she weaved information around their minds, her students grew fonder of the arts. Ms. Zink’s impressions on her students lead them to great success over a life time. Without her insight and structured rules, these artists wouldn’t exist. To become even more advance artist, they need a bit of art every day. Throughout life, art continues to have a set of rules that artists need to let their creativity run wild, even at judgmental times while recognizing a certain style. First off, they must let their imagination take off in all directions, so creativity can flow out infinitely. For example, they would design a bedroom scheme. Brainstorms can cause sparks to fly which creates a variety of ideas. Some ideas are a vintage 1950s theme for their grandmother to a football theme for the little brother. Even connecting to their taste can make a comfortable space. Sculpting a mystical animal is another point to show. They can experiment with new techniques and design tools. Craving out the fox’s head can show the different features from the whiskers to the pointed ears. Something else that can be created is, designing an inspired character from a Pixar film. The enjoyment of making up a character from their favorite Pixar flicks helps them, by developing new skills. Like how to draw different sizes of the noses to attaching the hands to the body. Another example is creating a futuristic project. It just doesn’t come from drawing lines on paper but, thinking outside the box. They can write out the advertisements to coming up with a catchy slogan. The project is a jump rope that lights up when they begin to move as music plays by the speed of how fast the move. The outcomes shows, their imagination can create a variety of art work that can benefit for them later on. In addition, an artist must never judge his or her sketches till the last line is drawn. Sometimes the appearance can throw them off from completing their sketch. Drawing a portrait out of charcoal can be hard use because it rubs off easily. But blending out the lines and going over a few times will make it work. Sketching a piece by piece picture of a high school principal can lead to mismatch lines when connecting the pictures. Instead work with what’s there to create a constructed sketch. Also asking for an opinion from someone helps by working around the mismatched lines. Another example is, creating yearbook entries. When he or she enters their sketches into a contest, one might be chosen out of all. Luckily enough they are not judging their own work but, hoping that their sketches make a great impression on the judgers. Not only that, but it shows the variety of styles they can generate from one idea. Sculpting a miniature size Home Alone character is the last example. When sculpting out the face clay tends to manage well except small details at times. Even if they mess up a bit, finishing the whole figure first is important. Also getting a second point of view can assure their work is done right. Listening to their own remarks won’t get them anywhere, but from others it can…
* Elise winters is an American artist from New York. Winters specialises in creating contemporary jewellery and sculptures with polymer clay. Polymer clay is a very unique medium that feels like clay while sets to be like plastic or resin. Winters says that the reason she likes to work with this material so much is that it’s so malleable and she can easily create the organic shapes she wants by pulling, twisting and tangling the clay. Just like the ‘dinosaur designs’, Elise winters is greatly inspired…
A Contemporary Artist: Salvador Dali
For this assignment I chose to write about Salvador Dali’s “Persistence of Memory”. Salvador Dali was born on May 11, 1904 in Spain. Salvador studied in Madrid and then went to Paris in 1920 to interact with Miro, Picasso, and Magritte. Salvador is “best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work,” (Salvador Dali Paintings, 2013). The main style Salvador focused on for this painting was surrealism. “Surrealism is a period in art…

Artist management involves the activities of organizations or persons that facilitate the
success of artists. The artist manager makes use of the artists’ potential in benefiting both parties
of the agreement (Allen, 2011, p.1). Laws in place have affected the customs and practices in
artist management over the last twenty-five years in music. Acts by the governing authorities
have contributed to these changes in the United Kingdom. Initially agreement between artists and
Frida Kahlo Comes To Dinner
The fascinating character of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is brought out in the poem “Frida Kahlo Comes to Dinner” by Christina Strickland. In this poem a narrator describes Frida Kahlo’s behaviour and the atmosphere she creates when she comes to a dinner party. The character of Kahlo depicted in this poem brings out the themes of making the most of life; enjoying yourself; being an individual, and not caring for society’s moral code.
The use of Frida Kahlo’s fascinating…

No one on this earth should give up his/her family to pursuit success. French post-impressionist artist Paul Gauguin perpetually yearned for an exotic paradise, he abandoned his family and career to go to Tahiti. However, in the end, he lived a lonely…
eye of many viewers. Known for their bizarre appearances and seemingly pointless marks of color, abstract art has transformed into an art that has hidden meanings and triggers several emotions. While they may seem to represent a certain object, the artist tends to have different intentions behind their brush strokes. With this in mind, art was transformed into a more expressive movement and has permanently changed to this day with some of the most outlandish pieces of art.

Personal Artist Statement
Something that inspires me to make art is how open it is, you can draw anything you want
to express. If you were only to draw certain things , I think it wouldn't be that fun and inspiring.
Sometimes I draw when I am bored and I also get inspired by music. Depending on the type
of music that I hear that's sometimes what I would interpret.Sometimes artist's artwork look so
amazing that it inspires me to try to do something like their artwork…

Modern Artist and Ancient Philosopher
The two essays, “The Creative Process” by James Baldwin and “The Allegory of the Cave” by Plato, highlight the importance of a two people whose roles in society are very alike. Baldwin, in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement of the 60’s, writes about the artist in that time’s (still holding true for today) society, being the outcast and gateway for others. Plato writes an allegory shining light upon the duty…
Banksy: Artist or Lawbreaker?
Art is a persons’ opinion. The definition of art is the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. There is no real definition for what is beautiful or appealing to the human eye. Banksy is said to be an artist by some and a graffiti lawbreaker by others. Basically, it is up to the person to define Banksy as someone who is doing the right thing verses doing the…
