These past two weeks all we've been having full studio days and just working on our busts the whole class. I do not love this project... I definitely do not think or see in three dimensions so its been really hard translating what my face looks like into a sculpture. I also haven't gotten a good likeness of myself which is really frustrating and annoying. I have added hair which helped and today I was told that I look like a cancerous holocaust survivor so I added more meat to my face which helped. The bust doesnt look like me but no one else's does either even if they are really well sculpted. I am ready for this project to be over but its been okay so far. Last Friday a few art school students came in to talk about pursuing a career in art which was interesting but kind of discouraging just because I'm not passionate enough about anything to see myself putting exorbitant amounts of effort into it. oh well....
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
