Art, Happenings, Make, Create, & Share!, student artwork

Student Spotlight! (January 2021)

Each month I will be spotlighting one of my students – past or present, and their artistic ventures! I work with students of all ages and abilities and you’ll get to learn a little bit about these amazing artists and their work!

Our January spotlight is on:

Amy Stiegler

My name is Amy Stiegler. I’m 15 years old and I’m a freshman in high school. I have been taking art lesson with Ms. Jenell since 2014. I began to take art classes after I watched a movie and drew the characters and my dad saw and signed me up. Other artists as well as things I see and experience in my life inspire me to create. I love drawing with charcoal and painting with acrylics. Other than visual arts I am interested in photography and music. With my love of music I’d like to become a singer and songwriter. My favorite piece I’ve created is a dragon. It’s my favorite because it was one of the first pieces I did and every time I look at it I get inspired to keep drawing. I listen to music or soundtracks that apply to what I’m working on. For example, when I was drawing a lion, I listened to the Lion King soundtrack. Someday I’d like to try spray painting because I feel it would be fun.

Title: Lizzy
Medium: Acrylic
Description: Lizzy is my dog and has been by my side for my entire life. She is 16 now and still as energetic as ever so it was quite the challenge to snap the photo this painting is of.

Title: Live Love Lions
Medium: (uh mixed – there’s a lot happening)
Description: When we first making this with Ms. Jenell I was very confused on how it would work together, but it’s now one of my favorites and includes maps of important places to me as well as my birthday and stars. 

Title: Canyon Moon
Medium: Acrylic
Description: I was inspired to make this painting after listening to a song called “Canyon Moon”. I painted this sometime in the middle of quarantine and was very happy that I decided against the “realistic” colors.

Amy is not afraid to get creative and once she has an idea – she’s determined to create it with the mediums at hand! She works to perfect her art until she’s happy with it and is always willing to give new techniques & mediums a try. Her artwork also reflects her fun loving personality and is sure to send a message of happiness to the viewer!
