Wish me luck as I keep trekking forwards in art, self care, and personal progression this summer!
Also, Thank you to all those who follow my many social media accounts, your comments and likes are always an encouragement to me.
Hello again! It has been a while, but I am back in the saddle for the second half of my third year of my BFA. I was sick for almost a week, which has put me behind in school work, but I am catching up quickly. If you are interested in the projects I have up my sleeve, stay tuned!
I have been granted the position as one of the student Artist in Residence's at ACAD, which means I am making work based of the topic of mental health awareness, specifically Anxiety Disorders and Depression. For the project, I am making ceramic armor using geometric scales that will be individually sewn onto a thick fabric or thin leather jerkin/shirt. I would also like to make a ceramic sword and helmet if time allows me to.
For my classes, I have a sculpture research class, interdisciplinary humanities, a video course (we get to use Super 8 cameras and 8mm film?!), a glaze and clay science course, and a sculpture studio. For my sculpture body of work this semester I am focusing on wearable art. While I have a number of projects planned out, my first one will be... A FABRIC SUIT OF ARMOUR! I have been making patterns and I just got my dress form in the mail, so I can begin my sewing in earnest!
