This is what its about....

       So as you may know I uploaded my slideshow yesterday and watched it with Mrs.Kiick this morning in class. She started jumping in circles and crying; I realized this is the sole reason why I love art. I was trying to get a message across in my video and clearly she received it. When I went back to art for the next of many periods i spend in that class room Mrs.Kiick had gone to buy me a muffin because she said she "just loves to be impressed" in which i responded that, I just love impressing her. Its not only the delicious food that made this day remarkable but that I think I finally understood the true impact of art. If I could wake up everyday and have MY art make someone that happy, I think I would be happy every single day.

This is real, This is me

Make a video - it's fun, easy and free!

Note: The images in this slideshow play through twice for the effect and message of the song attached.

 For my metal working project I decided to make a closure for my book. The dome in the middle will serve as a hook to close the book. After sawing out all of the parts it was time to solder. When the flux was painted on we didn't mean for it to show up in any certain pattern. As always, art worked it's magic. This piece turned out better than I could have ever imagined. This is one of the main reasons I love art so much. Sometimes things just happen, there's no way to predict what's going to happen and that's what makes it so beautiful.

My Dinner Party Guest: Tribute to A Day to Remember

I chose to invite a band that has had a large impact on my life. Each part of my place setting represents a different song; the plate represents the song out of time, the cup is inspired by sticks and bricks and the bowl  is inspired by The Downfall of us all. These pieces do not actually sit together like a normal place setting but that too is representative of the band. They want their fans to know that they are not alone but they can stand on their own. Each part of the place setting has a meaning but together their meaning has a larger purpose.
