Graduate Class Artwork

This month I have been doing a lot of drawing and creating for my classes.  I found it interesting to make art in a different medium than the mixed media collages I have been doing.  I have been doing research that I am interested in on some artists and themes.  From my researched ideas, I have been evaluating my own work, questioning my-self about what my art has to say and what motivates me to create.  Because I am taking two different graduate classes, I have two separate art statements, and I have been trying to refine them both.  Below is some of the work that I have created this month.




 This image is inspired by a classmate’s artwork.



Some of the sketches from the beginning of the month are dark, at the start of the month my art desk needed a light fixed, once the broken light was fixed the photos came out better.

I have also found that I really want to get back into creating block prints, so I will be using some of my sketches to create the stamps for block printing.
