Featuring Alice A. : Working on unlocking her true artistic potential!
" As I went through this semester, I think that I grew in my art technique. I can now use my creative imagination and let it run loose..."
Alice started with the basics this year, not having much experience with many mediums outside of pencil and acrylic. I had her begin by learning color mixing and achieving perspective with value and shape!
Most importantly she is learning how to take her big colorful imagination into a step by step process. This has enabled her to focus in on certain ideas, techniques, or subjects she'd like to explore more specifically.
"As I grew Mrs. Mercy showed me my true potential and helped me figure out what type of art that I love most! That art technique is Gel plate printing. I love the way I can put my design in it and decorate the way I want as I go."
Gel plate printing is a fun process that every beginner and professional artist can enjoy. Printmaking is a perfect way to experiment with color and shape combinations. Alice excelled at building a striking and quick composition with her work in this medium.
Alice also spent a good part of the year working on acrylic painting. She completed several styles like Abstract, Surrealism and Impressionism to name a few. One of my favorite pieces is her mountain landscape done with mixed media collaging!
I am very proud of the hard work Alice has put into growing in her ability. I am looking forward to seeing how she continues to grow and practice in the areas of art that she is inspired by!
