Each month I will be spotlighting a student and their artistic endeavors! I work with students of all ages and abilities – you’ll get to learn a little bit about these amazing artists and their work in this monthly series! This is our first of the series – however, you’ll be able to find future spotlights here!
Our May spotlight is on:
My Name is Sarah Milbow, I will be 15 this upcoming June. I am a homeschooler who lives in Tyaskin, MD and have been taking art with Ms. Jenell for about six years. Being homeschooled has allowed me to pursue my interest in life and in the arts. I love to dance, which I have been doing since age four. My favorite form being contemporary. I have always enjoyed art and crafts of all types, but my favorites are sketching and painting. My inspiration comes from my inner self which is so important when doing any form of art because it helps channel your feelings.
Do you enter your artwork in any shows or contests? “I have entered many art shows and contest, all of which have been with Ms. Jenell.”
When you’re making your art do like to listen to music or watch tv for inspiration (if so what)? “When I am creating art, I like to listen to music and if the weather is nice, sit outside.”
Is there a certain style, or type, of art that you’d like to someday try? “In the future I would like to work more with pottery and its different techniques.”
Do you have a favorite color? “My favorite color is purple.”
How has your artwork improved/what have you done to keep improving as an artist? “I play around with different methods of art to help me improve my artwork.”
Sarah puts forth her best effort into all of her artwork. She’s never afraid to try out new mediums and methods of art – which easily allows her to continue to broaden her talent and skill, while discovering where her passions lie and developing her own personal style! Her positivity and self motivation towards improving her artistic abilities is inspiring. I can’t wait to see where she takes all of her creative ventures!
