Journal Entry 2

I am the co-specialist for the Art activity they offer there. My Goal for the students is too create a comic book to display their creativity and their passion in art. I received this opportunity through my sisters connection with the site Coordinator Kwesi Haynes. I was called into the site and received an interview with the site coordinator. I showcased some of my artwork and displayed my passion for the arts and received the position on the spot and started working that same day.

During the interview I was asked things such as why do I want to intern here? What is my major in school? Why do I love art? And what does art do for me? I answered converting my love for art and exactly what it does for me; and why kids are the metaphor of what art does for me. Essentially, art is an escape from adult life for me, and all the stress that comes with. It brings me back to my childhood where I could completely be by my lonesome, but create worlds full of  creativity and fantasy.
