“Make sure that you tell your art’s story. The story behind an object, even when the object isn’t worth big bucks, is often what entertains intrigues and attracts viewers. A work of art without a story is just another pretty picture.” –Alan Bamberger, art consultant
This is a friendly reminder that tomorrow from 2-3:45 is our YoungArts meeting. We will be meeting in the Mezzanine. You should report there at 2pm sharp and begin hanging, laying out, and getting your work prepared to show. I expect that you will all be prepared and ready to share your progress. You should be able to communicate clearly about your ideas. Practice describing your work in one or two sentences. See previous posts for details about requirements. Visit www.young arts.org so you have a clear understanding of the organization, their goal, requirements, and of all the opportunities.
Considering these questions beforehand will make you more comfortable when talking about your work:
- Why did you choose that particular subject(s)?
- What are your intentions, any specific meaning to be read into your subject?
- Have you used symbolism (overt or hidden)?
- Do the colors have any special significance to you?
- Why did you give it the title you did? (Or why haven’t you decided on a title yet?)
- Why did you paint it that size?
- If you regularly use different mediums, why did you select the one you did for this particular piece?
We will be partaking in pizza, feel free to bring in monies to donate towards the cost of the refreshments.
