Stand By Me – Jade Bissonnette

Talent Statement:

“I came up with this idea because of my last charcoal drawing. I had a fun time doing it, but I did not like the image I did. So I decided to change that. I took a photo I can look at daily! I have been doing art for 7 years. I love to do new things. Especially painting monochromatics. I just started to practice tattooing as well. I enjoy opening up your own world of beauty, and making it a masterpiece.

Duct Tape COVID-19 Prom Dress – Peyton Manker

Talent Statement

“While in quarantine, I have been creating my duct tape prom dress while watching tons of broadway shows on YouTube and Netflix shows! I came up with the idea to make my dress due to the impact the coronavirus had on the world.

It was originally for the Stuck At Prom scholarship contest held by the duct tape company Duck Brand. This is the first time I have made a wardrobe out of duct tape as well as artwork, however, I remember making duct tape wallets and flowers when I was 10 years old.

This is my first year at SWIC but I wish I was able to experience the school in person this year, but I am looking forward to it next year. From what I have experienced already, the teachers seem amazing and are always ready to help when it is needed!” – Manker

Shar Pei – Kerra Hayes

Talent Statement

This piece was a commission of a friend’s dog done in April of this year. I’ve been doing art for as long as I remember and took art classes from ages 11 to 16 at Hall of Frames.

I enjoy drawing and clay sculpting, and have attempted painting, but my favorite medium is using pastels.

I have taken two classes at SWIC learning about the history of art and art of different cultures and have enjoyed both of them, and I would like to take classes in the future to learn how to create different types of art.”
