ArtForce 2014

A Poem by Janay Watson

So here is the day we’ve all been waiting for

The day our community sees how much our creativity soars

We were taught to be teaching artists from day one

And we’ve had nothing except nonstop fun

It’s awesome being able to do what you love everyday

What more can I really say

Art is a way to express yourself in a way no one else can

You portray your thoughts and emotions in a unique way to make people understand

We may be young but we are capable of the impossible, we move people through our passion

And in our own unique artistic fashion

We have dreams, big dreams in fact

But nothing is impossible for us to accomplish

Paper making was somewhat of a challenge at first

But once you get the hang of it, your creative juices will burst

I never really knew the importance of paper until we made it ourselves

It was made out of fiber and water which required using felts

Have you ever made hats out of paper?

You’d be amazed at what you can make

Using bags, paper, and other recycled material…You just might have to use tape

I know, I know, it sounds crazy, but really is fun

You can’t knock it until you try it. The capability level is for everyone

Coming into ArtForce, we all had goals

But one thing I can say for everyone is that we all have progressed and grown

We now all have broadened our experiences and skills

As well as life lessons and friendships we’ve built.
