Art Personal Statement Essay, Research Paper

From an early age I have always

had a strong interest in art, and have been involved with it in some form all

through my life. In year nine I realised that it was something that I might

like to pursue as a career, I started taking it more seriously. The Chase’s art

department encouraged me very well and helped me develop my art skills. I am currently studying Art at

A-level and have had my work exhibited in a gallery and in local industry

buildings as part of the ‘Art in the Workplace’ scheme which is organised by my

college. The piece of my artwork which

was displayed, and used in a business’s workplace was a painting inspired by an

Art Department trip to Italy. In my

spare time, I enjoy running my own comedy website with my friends, which has

enabled me to learn good organisational skills. Aside from art, I enjoy playing basketball with other students

from my college every Wednesday afternoon.

I have found this to be a welcome break from normal study, allowing me

to exercise at the same time as relieving stress. My present interest in art is

more graphic/typography based, although I do enjoy all areas of art. I have

been designing graphics on my computers from a young age and have work

published in national magazines. Not all the graphical work I do is computer

based, I enjoy using traditional mediums in a clean graphical way, as I find it

more satisfying working on a larger scale and producing something more “real”.

My current course has helped me “branch out” more; I have experimented in many

disciplines successfully producing paintings, pastels and drawings, which I had

never really developed fully before. I have had two part-time jobs

involving computer related work, in which I have been able to bring art influences

into. When working for Retail Futures, an e-commerce company based in Malvern,

I designed their corporate image, and websites for clients such as Coalport and

Parcel Force. More recently I have taken another job with a more technical

slant, for another e-commerce firm, eplexus. I still do design work, in which I

have designed websites and images for “”, and Anglo Digital a

successful venture capitalist firm. Alongside my practical experience, I am

also studying Computing at my current college, which aids me to learn the

fundamentals of computer usage and programming, an area that I am interested

in. Whilst in the lower sixth, I was

asked to help with an activity arranged by Shell Oil which was aimed at

capturing the interest of pupils around the age of ten and eleven by involving

them in scientific activities.

Throughout the day I acted as a teacher for year six pupils from various

junior schools. Working in a group, we

had to demonstrate the building of a ‘balloon boat’ and then supervise the

children whilst they attempted to build their own. This helped me to use my

communication skills in explaining the theory behind building the boat to young

people who had possibly not yet encountered that stage or type of science. Throughout my time at both school

and college, I have been involved in a number of activities, and have also made

an effort to maintain a good balance between this and my academic work. Being involved in and having the ability to give

something back to my college has always been important to me, and it is

something that I am keen to continue at College. My passion is art and I look

forward to further developing my ability at foundation and degree level.
