Mickaela is a senior here at the Uniontown High School and has been a member of the Art Club since her freshman year. As a junior, she was co-president of the art club alongside Evelyn Kitelinger. She is also stage manager for the stage crew that assists the Drama Club during One Acts, and the musical. In addition, she is a member of the National Art Honors Society. Today I asked her some questions about her work and perspective.
Q: What is your favorite type of art to make?
A: “Probably throwing on the wheel because it’s challenging but also therapeutic.”
Q: How long have you been making art?
A: “Since preschool but I started taking it more seriously starting in about 9th grade.”
Q: Do you plan to pursue art in the future?
A: “As a hobby, yes; as a career path, no.”
Q: How does art make you feel?
A: “Happy, frustrated, and everywhere in between. It depends on what emotion I’m trying to project and understand through what I’m making and how difficult of a piece it is technically.”
Q: What artist would you like to meet (alive or dead)?
A: “Banksy would be a cool one to meet partly because he’s so anonymous and not much is known about him. His works also carry complex messages through simplicity and I respect that.”
