Revival of the Arts... All of Them
Organized by: Chase Rivera
Most schools have an art show, with art projects, made by art students. What about those kids that aren’t in an art program but are talented in fields like the visual, performance and electronic arts (video game design, animating, 3D modeling, movies, etc.). Their talents are under appreciated by schools and rarely seen by their communities. My local school has an art show like every other school and even that is under attended. Inspired by Google’s “20% Time” that asks employees to spend 20% of their time working on ideas and projects that interest that employee, as a class’ group project, my group is working to raise money for advertising and equipment to display digital artistic entries. All left over proceeds would go to better equipment for our under resourced electronic arts classes.
