leaving soon

I'm leaving Miami in one month to be an OL at Ringling so maybe I should start painting. After going to the Wynwood Artwalk last night, I was inspired by the seemingly effortless pieces and sculptures that were showcased and being sold for thousands of dollars. Oh, to be a contemporary artist these days.

I realized I'd like to be an art teacher/ illustrator in the future. My elementary school teacher Mrs. Burris noticed I was excelling in art class and told me I had potential to go to a visual arts program in middle school. At that point I had no idea what I was doing, but she lead me in the right direction and I think that would be cool to do too. I'd like to show kids how to express themselves with art despite the fact that art programs in elementary and middle schools (at least in Miami-Dade county) are closing but football is getting more funding. Assuming there will still be a demand for art teachers, I'm going for it.

Also found a cheap anatomy book at barnes and nobles so whoever reads this should check them out :)
