Title

A New Way of Living

Format

Senior Art and Design Exhibition

Abstract/Artist Statement

You can say that my art is craft or you can say that my art is design. No matter what way you put it, I call it a lifestyle. I believe the embellishment of ordinary utilitarian objects enrich our lives. It is my goal to revisit the importance of craft to the world we live in. This is not an easy decision in the art academy. My mission and work is similar to that of Martha Stewart. We teach broad and practical life skills for food, gardens, and the home. The subject of my thesis is the artful application of crafts and the development of a book complete with projects for the home, as well as friends and family. They deliver the enrichment of the arts into every day life. My book contains a group of projects that I have designed complete with photographic illustration, sequential instructions, and material list and sources.With America’’s economy going into a depression, it is important that people revisit the value of homemade craft. Not only do the projects in my book help save on money but they include helpful skill for living apart from the consumer market. Homemade craft is the backbone of not only artists but the retail industry. With the economy dropping the quality of consumer products has been dropping too. It is my goal to help you see the importance and benefit that is still present today in homemade craft.
