2014 A Student Artist Statement

A Dancing Fire

Sometimes flames mean something. Sometimes they don’t. I’m a flame that will never run out of fire. My project shows my identity. I got my idea from things that describe me, such as, I’m free spirited, I’m “different,” and weird in my own way. My project is a flame that is “dancing.” It’s important I learn about myself, to help me make a gift for people like me.


My art piece connects to my identity in different ways. I love to dance and sometimes dancing is all over the place, like my fire. I’m a free spirit, which means I don’t always care about what other people think of me. I used a lot of materials for my project. I used glitter to show how I stand out, I used cellophane, because sometimes I’m shy. I used cardboard for the wood, because the wood is the fires base. My family is my base, because they are a big part of my life. I used paper for the flame, because I”m not strong enough, emotionally, to be something harder, but I’m strong enough to keep myself up right. I used splattered paint to show how, sometimes, I’m sloppy. I used hand prints, because I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty. Almost all of my materials mean something in my art piece.


I created my art piece, because I wanted to show my identity, and that will help me make a gift. Making an art piece about myself lets me see things about myself that I’ve never seen before. Everybody is different, and art is a way you can show people that. Flames are different. Here’s my flame. Can I see yours?
