We bring you yet another blog post from an Early Masters student perspective! Ms. Eloise (11 years old) always bounces into our studio with loads of energy and a fun-loving (but serious of course!) approach to art.
She has been in several Early Masters exhibitions at SAM and has studied a range of art styles with Impressionism and Pop Art among her favorites. Here, a few thoughts from an Early Masters pro.
Q: What was your first EM class? Do you remember the topic?
A:I believe that my first EM class was a Picasso class. We were talking about cubism, I think.
Q: What has been your favorite EM workshop? What makes it your favorite?
A:My fave Early Masters workshop probably was Impressionism, the pointilism one to be more exact. I felt like this was my favorite because it really took time to make every single detail, but I felt proud of my hard work after that, cause my painting looked awesome!
Q:How do you feel when you walk into the studio? Why do you feel that way?
A:When I walk into the very familiar and awesome-sauce studio, I feel really happy because not only do I get to learn something new (I love learning new things!), but I also get a majority of the time to work on one of my passions: art!
Q:How do you feel when you walk out of the studio with a new painting? Why do you feel that way?
A:Whenever I leave the studio with a fresh painting, I feel proud of myself for creating something. I feel as though my happiness to make art just pours into the painting, and as a result, I get something I love!
Q: What keeps you coming back to EM?
A:What always brings me back to the studio is
1. You guys are awesome-sauce!
2. Letting my creativity shine through in the form of a painting. The moment I grab onto the paintbrush, my emotions just sweep out on the page, making a medley of colors. I always love that feeling, and I always get back home with a bit more knowledge than I started off with about an artist.
Q:What or who is your greatest artistic inspiration?
A:Oh, jeez, I suppose I was thinking this question would come up. The answer is that I have so many totally awesome people on my list that I can't pick just one or even several!
