My third semester at Pratt is finally coming to an end.
It’s funny because just last year, I swore to myself that I would transfer to Art Center… I didn’t think Pratt challenged me enough and I thought they didn’t teach me enough. This semester completely changed that. I’ve learned so much that my brain feels like it’s going to explode… I’ve never been so challenged, and I’ve never works so hard. I’ve done countless all nighters, had multiple breakdowns, and I’ve never been so stressed out. But man… the experience I’m getting right now, and just the way my brain has transformed makes everything so worth it.
I’m here in NYC, experiencing art at a totally different level. Last year I went to MOMA hating it. Thinking everything was mediocre and stupid… Now I go there and finding myself truly inspired. I’m viewing not just art, but everything so differently. People back at home ask what in the world I learn at art school…
I’m learning about art… I’m not learning how to draw or paint… I’m learning how to create. I’m learning how to not just see art, but understand it. I’m learning design, and how the mind works. How to trigger emotions… and appreciating different aesthetics. I’m loving art more and more everyday, and I’m always learning something new. Even in art history class, I feel my passion burning and my heart just eager to know more and more.
I’m so blessed here… I really am…
I want everyone to understand this… I want people to know how much joy art can bring to them. I want them to judge a painting on not how real it looks but how interesting it looks. I want them to appreciate it through an understanding but also know that it’s not always meant to “get”… And I especially want them to know that this all takes intellect… Artists aren’t dumb…. If someone tells an artist that they’re just doing art because they’re dumb, that person is ignorant. Because before art school… I was ignorant. I still am. I still have so much to learn and I have such a long journey to go on.
but I love it. I absolutely love it. I was so sheltered at home… Coming here and being expose to such a beautiful and creative world… it is all so surreal. I love it. I really really do.
