The students noticed that Belinda's all seemed to be in boxes, that Cyndy's were all characters and that mine were hard to put in a category.
The talk I gave was on how I get my ideas. I told them that:
- Number one I was inspired by the items themselves, and then secondary to that my art was informed by the culture I live in and am exposed to:
- The news and commercials
- Viewing other art shows
Cyndy and Belinda brought a couple items each and did a digital slide show. I was very impressed by their work.
Afterwards Jerry passed out boxes of items he had collected over the years and purchased at the youth ranch bins. The 3 of us also brought stuff for the students to use. The students were all very interested and dove right into the project of making their own. We had to leave but hope to be back to see their work in progress and hear their final presentations.
