As we begin our final week of Filed Academy we asked the students to tell us what activities/experiences they like best so far. Here are some responses:
My favorite activity during The Art and Activism Field Academy was to go to Brooklyn and visit the art studio where we had the chance to draw a live model and after see some murals.
My personal favorite part so far is seeing murals in Philadelphia, because murals reflected real social issues or personal relations.
My two favorites actives were silk-screening with Kevin and visiting art studios in Williamsburg, once I was able to do something I have never done before and take a close look inside an artist’s life.
I have to say that silk-screening was one of my favorite things to do during m-term. All the trips that we had were amazing but silk-screening was something that was very special for me. Especially, this was first time I was trying this in my life, I really enjoy doing it.
I like drawing model very much. I have never drawn a model before, this was my first time drawing a model and I learned how to draw a position accurately. It helps me a lot.
In those two weeks, one of my favorite activities is gesture drawing. It is a great experience for me to improve my skills.
I think the best thing that I did in the M-term is silk-screening and seeing the Barnes Collection.
So far in this class, I had a lot of fun and I really enjoy doing art when friends. My favorite activities in this field academy is zines and the Philadelphia trip. Everyone in this class tried their best to make zines and all people did a great work. During the Philadelphia trip, we saw some famous artist’s work. Those works are beautiful and valuable for all human.
My favorite thing we did so far was seeing the Barnes Collection in Philadelphia and I also really enjoyed doing the silk-screening.
My favourite activity is the trip in Brooklyn, we went to a lot of arts studio and we draw a model, he’s really nice and he can do some hard pose for a long time.
My most favorite activities/ experience is “Drawing the Model at the Living Gallery” I had never drawing the model. So this activities/ experience is very new for me. I really like drawing the model with new tool.
My favorite activity will be the mural painting and the screen-printing. And the best experience will be Philadelphia trip
My favorite activity is drawing from a model. It gave us unprecedented experience.
