So here's the progress on my manifesto! I've got the base layer of 20 rings down and now I'm just adding details. I've included a few close ups of the details I've started. When the piece is complete I'll offer up a complete description!
Well, almost anyway. But the bulk of my stress is over. Today I turn in my teaching portfolio and course binder for my elementary art ed class, which is absolutely the most stressful class I've ever taken. But I did it, and nothing can stop me now!
Here's the cover I made for my teaching portfolio. I suppose you could say that it reflects my opinions of art as well!
On another note, I also finished some of my fibers finals. This is our collaborative embroidery piece. You start with yours and embroider your name, and then pass it along to the next person. Despite how much work everyone did on someone else's work, the original artists were still able to make the embroideries their own. I honestly really enjoyed this project. I did my name, the kantha stiches (the swirly, ripple-y background colors), and the alien spaceship.
So close to finishing this semester. SO. CLOSE.
My name is Allison Nickens. I graduated from James Madison University with a BFA in Fine Art in 2015. After graduation I began live painting at music and arts festivals and at local shows, and still continue to show and sell my work around Harrisonburg,VA.
