About this project
This project is more than just writing a thesis on art, but it's my way of expression, of understanding the world and different cultures. I want to self publish this thesis, experience these things, to not only tell the story, but to live it. I consider myself an artist, but to a certain extent, but I'm ready to get out of my comfort zone and explore what other type of art there is out there.
This thesis on arts and crafts goes to the root of art and exploits it all, how and when it was done, how this type of art came about and touch basis on how women in the old days compared to now, made everything by hand. I'm really going to exploit all of this in this self published book if successful and it'll come with a documentary of everything that I experienced and done as an artist.
I'm trying to walk in another person's shoes, do things that I've never before done or wanted to do. But I'm really passionate about getting this project out there and writing everything down, taking pictures, documenting these things and revealing it to the world. A lot of these crafts, I feel have been lost in time or have been over shadowed. This book - "To the roots" will show all different kinds of culture, exploit their crafts and how it was born, how certain art came about and once this is published, I'll be able to bring lost art to the light. And to show people, as well as myself, what I've been missing.
Please help me and thank you for the one's who will.
What is the money for?
Cam corder and a Cannon camera to document every art that I experience.
- Classes and the art materials for each art that I plan on tapping into like: paint brushes, pencils, charcoal, knitting/crocheting needles, yarn, embroidery needles and fabric, quilts, pillow stuffing... etc.
