STUDENT BLOG: Finding Artistic Inspiration

By APP Artists Shannon M. and Donna L.

Last month, while keeping with the theme of “The Artist Within”, the advanced APP classes viewed the work of several well-known artists. The students also watched a few documentaries to learn more about creative approach and artistic practice. Some of the artists whose work was viewed use their practice as a research tool, while others use it to show personal experiences and stories. Here is a sample of what APP artists explored:
