My Art Process + Make A Sculpture With Me! (Abstract, Modern Art)


the beauty of Contemporary Art is that there are no rules anything goes you can use old clothes metal chains cardboard your grandma’s paperweights experiment go wild get crazy put glitter on it I think that the same elements apply as when styling an outfit incorporate a pattern an interesting texture and something shiny hey you guys welcome back to my channel thank you for being here I hope you’re doing well so for today’s video I’m coming at you from my art studio as you can see because I’m gonna be showing you how I make a sculpture in my process for making a sculpture from beginning to end so excited to share this with you guys because it’ll be a way for me to include you guys more in my practice and my art practice and I have thought of a fun little twist so that it could be our sculpture a sort of collaboration between us so basically what I thought if I’m gonna be doing the form and everything and then afterwards I will let you guys vote on that different color scheme so I’ll give you guys a choices to end and then I will show you guys the final products on Instagram the fun way for us to kind of make something together I thought so for today’s video I’ve also heard up with skill cheer again they are sponsoring this video so if you don’t know what skill share is it’s an online learning community for creators of over 25,000 different classes and writing music bills and that’s just to name a few with Premium Membership you have unlimited access to classes you can really choose the courses and communities that they your interests and I really think that no matter what your interests are there is something for everyone for me personally I think it’s me doing with their film classes and there’s a class about how to make a mini documentary and I just love that so much because I have so many ideas for different series and mini Docs and I’m gonna share with you guys some really really cool so they’re helping me learn that it’s less than 10 dollars a month for an annual membership they’re also offering the first 500 subscribers to use the link down below a two month free trial so I really encourage you guys to check them out and join the 7 million creator is learning on the platform today now getting back into the video I was really excited and motivated to share this video in particular with you guys because I think that for beginners who are interested in making a sculpture it can be a little intimidating and I think that we also put a lot of pressure on ourselves for our art to have a super deep meaning and for it to only be good if it’s something that is ambiguous or something that we can currently understand ourselves and I just wanna show you guys that that’s not true your sculptures your creations you know they can be motivated just by play just by wanting to have fun and make discoveries you know if it’s not that a serious I always get asked so what are your sculptures mean and like I mean sometimes they have a deep Remini and sometimes I start with an object and I kind of wanted the loaf of it I think there’s kind of two minds of thinking there’s people without plan out ahead of time and then there’s people that play an experiment and anything will maybe I made that because of this I’m definitely the second one I just would have fun and have an amazing time experimenting in the process so I can’t wait to show you guys from start to finish what that process looks like the ups and the downs is all the color in between and maybe sharing this with you once berry knew to just like let go a little and allow yourself to play and experiment with the medium and don’t forget to stick around if you want to learn how you can get involved with the final project and the collaboration between us so yeah let’s get into it so to begin I will either draw something from scratch or recycle materials that I find at junkyards etcetera for this sculpture I was inspired by a scrap piece of styrofoam which I will use as my starting point slash base for an abstract heart tree so there are many many different ways to make the bones of a sculpture before the tree leg object that I’m going for I decided to use chicken wire because it’s bendy it’s low cost and I can sculpt with it quickly and easily with my hands I’m using a broomstick which I plastid to the styrofoam and to support it and keep the structure up [Music] [Music] so what I’m doing now is covering the entire chicken wire and master strips and this makes it solid [Music] okay so I thought that I would also show you guys my work table so you get an idea of how I organize myself when I’m working okay so the truth is I don’t really organize myself very well I’m probably like the least organized person so this is like my official work table I have like a bunch of different molds things like that my posture and and some people could never work like this no give them anxiety but I just I like to have one table with a bunch of different stuff on I just grab a different stuff so I had asked a couple weeks ago before a Q&A for people to ask me questions and I got a lot of art related ones but one that stuck with me is someone asked what do you do if people don’t like what you make I think David Hockney said ones not a critique can only hurt if you’ve already thought that same critique on yourself for example if someone said oh yeah your sculptures ugly the problem would only hurt my feelings if I had already thought this sculpture might be ugly you know the human population is so diverse and people have so many different tastes you just have to have confidence what you’re doing and enjoy the actual process because if you’re always looking for like a finished product to be learned beautiful then you’re gonna be disappointed I know that we all want things to look pretty but something can be beautifully ugly you know like some of my sculptures are kind of grotesque just because they’re not like classically beautiful doesn’t mean have equality in them Joey Snoopy you can’t go with us dogs aren’t allowed on the school bus faster meant to be kind of like the pancake mix basically and I’m just gonna put it over all right so I think business faster for the color and he looks like a flower we want it to look like so something kind of annoying that happens to me who knows it can be hard to know what is too much and what’s too little because if you had too much color then it can’t breathe but I really like to add color and stuff but sometimes I can go over overboard so I always like to step away because I wanted to be able to breathe – I don’t want it just to be too much [Music] so it’s now almost nine o’clock and there’s no one left at school just me and God sometimes I’m you’ve been doing this all day if they can look at a wall for like 10 minutes and then what am i doing I’ll make something I feel like great way it’s like but they do I just don’t look good pretty good person then I do feel like a connection with it in love and if it’s my baby or something it’s our baby because y’all are going to be picking on the pain [Music] [Music] [Music] yeah I know I said in the beginning I was gonna let you guys pick out the colors for the top which I am but I thought that if you guys want to see like my process and everything that it would be better if I did one side and you guys the other size that you guys can see like how I actually do a sculpture but it’ll still be collaborative and cool I have this gold paper and I got it so that it looks like leaves or whatever and I thought that I would tear it up into a little like cool different forms and put it all over the top so it will be white and will be able to breathe unlike the bottom but it’ll be covered and like this other gold stuff I was thinking about maybe put like just this part here doing it in black and then yeah we’ll see if it looks cool and then you guys can pick out the rest of the colors for the other side you know what no matter what color you guys choose I’m probably an addict loader so first option is blue green purple green blue or pink whatever ends up winning I will post the final sculpture our collaborative sculpture that we made together I sound like a so ridiculous like I sound so like oh my god you guys but I think it’s just so cool I’m probably the only time will do something like this because I’m not a control freak but obviously like I have a probably gonna be only time and I do this so make sure to vote and it’ll be our sculpture so yeah I’m gonna do the top now hopefully it looks cool [Music] I know you [Music] okay guys wait the next day I’ve cleaned up the floor and that prosecutor could see them form a little bit better so other things that I’ve done I have finished putting the gold leaf on top and I have also a blue piece of cardboard under it which to me kind of looks like it’s floating on water which i think is really cool and yeah this is my sculpture that I’ve needed today though you guys liked it don’t forget to vote for the colors I’m gonna keep the market Lisa sculptural collaboration and I’ll post it on Instagram so don’t forget to follow me there and subscribe if you want to see more videos for me thank you so much for joining me for this video and I will see you guys in the next one stay inspired I love you five [Music]

    I needed this. I left artschool after two years because I could just not deal with/understand the way my teachers treated me. Ever since I've been hesitant about making stuff. But in the end you reminded me that I should do it for me, and that I can take my time to grow and experiment when I feel comfortable, not my teachers. thank you <3. You are so pure and I love seeing your videos and approach to life. Hearing you talk about art is so inspiring and refreshing.

    I love this so much! I love working on projects and seeing it all come together, whether it's writing a script or story or poem or just doing a bit of decoration in my room! I'm really loving how your sculpture is coming together, it definitely has that 'by the sea' feel to it so I love the blue base you've added. Its shape reminds me of a harp 😀 it's lovely– there's something mythical about it! I choose Purple for The Purple Palace 🙂 xx

    I'm on the fence – either peach or purple. Kind of leaning towards purple but I don't know. It's 1am here. I think I'd go purple in the end, lol. Also I love your videos! You have a very free energy and it's beautiful.
