Sophomore Lauryn Patton claims to be entirely dedicated to art. Last semester, Patton took a ceramic class and now she’s in both painting and drawing.Her love of art is derived from childhood, continuing into her junior high years, where she expressed her creativity with three years of art classes. Now she is continuing along that road.
“I like to be clean with it; I don’t like it to be messy,” said Patton in regards to her ceramics.
When it comes to drawing, Patton said that she prefers a realistic look– but she likes ceramics works kept neat and thin, just as she believes it should be. However, she admitted ceramics being messy and have dropped some pieces for painting, which proved equally messy to Ceramics.
“The teachers are really good,” she said when describing both her drawing and her ceramics classes.
Patton prefers something incomplete instead of done quickly without putting her best effort into the design. Patton appears to have a good way of taking her ideas and making them a reality in a simple and smart way.
Patton claims to be most drawn to ceramics. She said, “It got her hands occupied and into something.”
She explained that it was a good stress reliever and it soothed her, which she enjoyed.
Her favorite piece was her blue tortoise pinch-pot animal inspired from the video game Mario Kart. She said she took great time and effort into it; it turned out stunning, finished with a blue glaze, tying the piece together.
Patton is very passionate about all the art classes she has taken, and her style differs from each. In her drawing class she prefers realistic drawings, and in her ceramics and painting classes she likes to be accurate and precise. Her cleanliness is reflected in most of her art.
