So how many of you have ever finger painted one of those turkeys in kindergarten? Well, if any of you just said no, then you were definitely deprived as a child. Not only is finger painting an awesome turkey with your hand extremely messy (which is the best part), but it helps express your creativity and individuality (and how fat your hand is). Of course, most famous artists don’t grow up selling finger painted turkeys or Mona Lisa’s. Instead, they use various methods and media to create a work of art that is their own. With the new and improved technology of today’s society, many people have lost sight of how majestic and calming creating a work of art can be (no matter how bad it turns out). Teens find themselves lost in a sea of movies and computer games, not only losing sleep, but killing brain cells. However, I am glad to say, that there are still those of us who are able to appreciate the worlds first form of entertainment.
Of course, there are many different types of art, and millions of different materials one can use to create them. Some people, like the famous Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh (if you don’t know these men, then your teachers have failed you) prefer using media such as paint or pastels. Other famous works of art are done using specific methods, like the works of Chuck Close. Close used a grid method when painting a work of art, which is really just like using mathematics to enlarge an image on one piece of paper, to fit the enormous canvas that Close used for his masterpieces. However, to simplify as much as possible, there are really only two kinds of art: 2D and 3D.
Jessie Adams and Mandy Crane are two ordinary students who attend Mill Creek High School in Hoschton, and who both love the arts. Jessie prefers working with a flat surface using many different media: pencil, charcoal, acrylic paint, and presmicolor. Mandy, on the other hand, likes to create 3D sculptures from just a lonely block of clay. The two styles are incredibly different and contain their own unique qualities that help to express the artists. The two girls have completely different art styles, but they both are very similar in personality. In fact, some people (including myself) would have never guessed that Jessie and Mandy were in fact into art as much as they are. Their dress, music preference, and yes I’ll admit, their Myspace profiles are not what you would automatically think for an artist. Of course, that’s because we are all familiar with famous artists that lived before rock-n-roll and the spectacular computer were invented.
So not only does the twenty-first century bring new and exciting technology, but also a new age of classic art. Who knows, you may see one or both of these special ladies’ works in twenty years from now, while searching aimlessly through Google for a school project you decided to do last minute. Well, I am sure many of you are thinking that you cannot draw worth, well, anything. So why don’t you try making something out of clay? Or plaster even? There are many different medias for both 2D and 3D, and I am pretty sure one person cannot be a complete failure at them all. You never know until you try.
