Transcript of A World of Possibilities

Opening A World of Possibilities
The Journey:

My first official Art class

"Drawing is about having a conversation with the medium. It's about seeing what works and doesn't work" - Bruce Amstutz



What I planned to learn:
Community Organizing

Project Development

Fundraising Techniques


"How hard could it be to get people together for a cause?"
Barriers / Conflicts:

Trying to convince the parents (the people with the money) how important art is for their children's education

Navigating protocols within a foreign organization

My own negative internal dialogue.
What I learned:
Art Supplies are crazy expensive, but there are many ways to skin a cat (sorry cat lovers).

500 students is not the same as several classes of 20.

Sometimes cheap is not practical.

Progress is often a slow process.

I am more than my thoughts and insecurities.
Passions Developed Along the Way:
Creativity for the sake of creativity without judgement. I want to share this with others.

Strong desire to work with local communities.

Helping others find what they are passionate about.
Science / Research- Why is art important?:
Leadership Skills:
You have to go in as an expert in your field, but be willing to ask for ideas and suggestions. Fake it till you make it!

Good Leadership also comes from being willing to do the leg work.
