This week I had the chance to meet and speak to Kyu Lee. She is a technical theater major with emphasis on lifting design, who will be graduating next month! She lives in Torrance so she commutes to school. On her free time she likes to catch up on sleep, play the guitar and do her nails. Nice meeting you Kyu!

This week the gallery had a diverse scenery of art, the artist that I had the chance to speak to is Chelsea Blecha. I learned that Chelsea will is a senior, she is graduating with a degree in illustration. She spoke about her mom being an artist. Her mother works for Nordstrom, and due to being exposed to art at a young age, she began to draw at the age of three.
Most of the art she had in her exposition, were drawings, they mostly look like ink and color pencil. One of the pieces I really enjoyed was the wooden skate board. She used the bottom of the board. She also had sketches of what looked like interior design.
She explained that all of her drawings come from her experiences. Most of her drawings were new, she was inspired by her trip to San Francisco. The board represents her teenage days when she used a skateboard.
Her exposition was beautiful. Her drawings were very delicate and pristine. The colors seemed very natural. Over all of the artists that had their work up, hers caught my attention right away.
This week’s art experience was a little more relaxed. We got to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful Japanese Garden on campus. The day was a beautiful sunny day so everything went great. My first thought was “hmm sketches, this will be easy and fun”… But I didn’t know how terrible I am at sketching and drawing until this activity LOL. The overall assignment was very intersecting and relaxing, as we got to pick the objects we wanted to sketch and were able to interact with classmates.
