My name is Makenzi and last week we went to visit Jorge
Leyva’s art studio. It was a great experience to visit a local artist. We all had the privilege to walk though
and talk with Jorge. Towards the end of our visit we all sat down in his studio
and did different sketches. We came together when we all had finished sketching
and Jorge looked at all of our work. He told each person what he thought of
their piece or pieces. I drew a candle surrounded by darkness, to show that no
matter how much darkness there maybe in the world the light will always win.
The main concept was to say that God will always stomp out that darkness. Jorge told me that by my drawing he could
tell I had a lot of hope in life and that I seemed like someone who wanted to
change the world. All which is true. I really enjoyed going to his studio and
seeing his art. He is a really cool and funny guy and I’m glad I had the
privilege to go.
Last week we went to studio of an artist named Jorge Jeyva . Now he was telling our
group some words of advice. He told me that my landscape drawing was better
than my person. The only thing with my person was I just made it up but I was
looking at the woods. But he told me “if you want to draw people tell them to
sit down and shut up because I’m going to draw you the”.
Hi I'm Kathrine! Jorge Leyva pretty much told me that I was a graphic designer and I have dark insides. Speaking of dark insides... my drawing was of an evil bird glaring at a good bird that was falling into fire, and my second was of a heart with a keyhole for her nose that opened up to a broken person with a knife in his head and his heart, dangling from a chain and thorns all around his feet. I'm gonna start looking more at graphic designart and exploring it. :)
