Telunas 2012

Lucky Charms. The choice snack food of everyone on the art retreat.
Don't judge us.
You know you'd eat them, too.
See my wonderful decorations on my sketchbook? They make me smile :)
I don't know if I've ever really mentioned this before, but I'm an artist. Or at least, I do art.  Acrylic on canvas is my favorite and I love drawing hair.  I don't know what it is, but that's what gets me.  But this year is different. I won't really be working with acrylic or canvas or paper or pencil. This year I'll be working with form and making 3D art, ie. sculpture, found objects, clay, etc.
I am terrified.
Every year, all the AP Art students go on a retreat to an Indonesia island called Telunas. It's like an artists heaven, where we spend the majority of the day eating and "arting."  Even our chaperones got in on it, I was especially amused by our vice-principal (he joined us on the trip). He made himself a little "doll," which was adorable.  I was also very productive *cough cough*.  I covered my sketchbook with stickers. It took me a good hour and a half. I'm pretty pleased with myself and if that's not productive, then I don't know what is.  Seriously though, I got a lot done. I sketched and practiced making 3D forms. It was a wonderful learning experience and I was able to meet so many new people. I know almost all the art suite and they are such a wonderful group of people. I feel so lucky to be a part of it.
If you're interested, I might put some of my work up from last year. But I need to figure out how to water mark it...hmmmmm. Any suggestions? 
Anyway, outfit post sometime soon, don't you worry buckaroos. I have some wonderful looks coming your way :3

have a wonderful day,
Annika

  13. So not only are you adorable, but you're the creative artistic type too. Love how you corrected that self-label there, but no need to - if you want to be an artist, then an artist you are! Beautiful photos.
