ART FROM PERSON TO PERSON
The visibility of the art world is not highly recognized in the lens from students and educators. If we have the opportunity and space to share a range of perspectives, then we can see how art significantly impacts the lives of the people- doing so can bring up the interest of others and further discussion about visual arts.
Discovering about my passion for visual arts in my last year of high school, I would often think about how late it is to take the path and be behind from my peers. I learned over time that there is no late or early timing in being an artist. Being able to retrace back led to this project of learning from others is used as an opportunity to spark interest to anyone and their creative side that has yet to be unleashed.
As a way to go back to memory lane, I ask educators and students from my previous schools about their experiences with visual arts as they will create art, draw, and doodle on paper that reflects their thoughts. Internalizing discussions and work will influence my art book that embodies the various perspectives of art that can be shared with others.
THE LENS IN SCHOOLS
As much as we grasp information of art from media outlets, not many people such as I have been educated on the path to the art profession. Visual arts is how students can be free to express themselves, yet there are people who do not see many opportunities going into it in the long run because of reasons such as financial instability and spaces to have the creative outlet. Because we do not see what goes on with art in and outside schools, people may find it difficult to see that there is support within the field if we look at the right places.
If we can give attention and consideration to students and educators involved with the arts, then we have taken the steps in the right direction and widen our initial knowledge about the arts! Here is a small description about themselves and how art has been influential in their lives.
