“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”
The Art Room
What makes your heart sing? That is the question posed during this week's art history lecture as we studied the life and work of Michelangelo Buonarroti.
At thirteen years of age, Michelangelo first trained as a painter in the studio of Domenico Ghirlandaio. Though the brush seemed made for his hand, it was the carving of stone that made Michelangelo's heart sing.
“The greatest artist does not have any concept
Which a single piece of marble does not itself contain
Within its excess, though only
A hand that obeys the intellect can discover it.”
Here are a few student pieces from this week that make my heart sing:
|Acrylic on Canvas|
|Evolution of CharactersAustin Carpenter|
This week, we also had a representative from SCAD give a presentation.
