AP Studio Artist – Ellie Tezak Unti

This semester I’ve been working on developing my ability to project my voice through the art that I create as well as furthering my artistic abilities. I’ve been really focusing on trying to move out of my comfort zone in doing larger pieces and trying to avoid outlining my pieces. With many reminders from Ms. B about the art mantras, I’ve been able to begin moving away from outlining and move towards pieces that are rendered more fully. I’ve been playing around with creating art out of media that I’m not used to using as well as unconventional media like coffee grounds and hot chocolate. By letting loose and creating without laying down a penciled framework, I’ve been better able to produce pieces with more depth and dimension. Finally, this semester I have begun to explore my sustained investigation topic in which I use my art to answer the question, “What happens to our sense of childhood imagination as we go into adulthood?”
