I want to study at the Art Students League because I want to improve my artistic abilities by learning new techniques and skills that will let me express my creativity the way I want. It is frustrating to have so many ideas and not be able to realize them.
“…I want to improve my artistic abilities by learning new techniques and skills that will let me express my creativity the way I want.”
When I grow up, I want to work in the animation and illustration field and having the opportunity to study at the League would prepare me for this work. I have always been fascinated by animated shows; the idea that I could take my art and bring it to life keeps me going.
Many artists have influenced me throughout my life, but now there are three that have really been influencing my style. Van Gogh has always been in my top three; his use of color and the direction of his brushstrokes have always influenced how I use color. Two contemporary artists that influence me are Nate Sweitzer and Caleb Bauer. I follow them on Instagram and whenever I feel an art block coming on, I go onto their pages to gain inspiration.
