Art school is a little weird. We are put into an unfamiliar environment that has almost no boundaries on our creativity. We are constantly being pushed to be as creative as we possibly can. The people are all very different and are always expressing themselves in whatever way they want to. Art school is a little weird, but in a good way.
This is my very first entry here at The Duck and the Owl. I chose to show these photos just to represent what I’ve been doing with my work. Being at an art school has changed my perspective for myself as an artist. I’ve just finished my freshman year at The Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, and what I’ve learned about this school is that it has a very competitive environment. Everyone is good at what they do and want to do something with their work. So naturally, I’ve felt pushed more than I ever have to get my work out there. So I take as many photos as I can, so that I can constantly be improving my portfolio. What I’m hoping to do through my entries is to show my work and my progress as I grow as an artist.
These are some photos I took with my friends just outside of Chicago at the Garfield Park Conservatory.
