This piece was inspired by Xane's recent outreach trip to Liberia. Check out those careful details worked into the clay to add texture to the rhino hide.
What is your art form? I love painting, writing, creating Youtube videos and doing makeup. These are all the forms of art that interest me.
What are you mainly interested in? I am mainly passionate about writing and making Youtube videos.
Why do you practice this art form? I love making videos about things I really love like makeup and beauty or videos with my friends. I have always loved reading and writing is like reading to me. It comes very naturally to me.
What/who inspires you and why? Other Youtubers inspire me a lot! The whole environment really induces creativity. All the authors that I read inspire me in my writing. I love JK rowling and John Green. They stand out to me the most.
Is this something you would want to go into as a career? I am completely interested in going to into videography and writing. With videos I want to become a lot more professional in the area with better equipment as well as better areas to shoot in. Going to beauty school also interests me. With writing, I would continue on it and get books published. I am actually currently in Delphian writing club! The writing club is a good community to talk about writing, get inspired, get rid of writer's block, share art with others as well as inspire others and help them with their own writing. It is a super fun environment.
What does being "creative" mean to you? Being creative to me is channeling your inner passion/soul out into the world and creating something with it.
Do you have any tips for artists that are interested in this field as well? Do what you do and never give up! If you let yourself get discouraged, or you give up, you’re not going to get anywhere and you won’t succeed.

This long exposure shot of Yahya Abulohoum by Kaden shows the fun you can have in low light. The glow bends to Yahya's will through the slow blink of the lens.
This detailed fashion sketch is just one of many reasons Renée was recently accepted into Parsons School of Design. Congratulations to Renée!
Amazing piece using Sharpie and watercolors.
“Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? No. Just as one can never learn how to paint.”

An outreach trip can change a community, but it can also shape a young individual. Isabelle was so struck by the children she met in Ghana that she decided to put pencil to paper.
