Young Artist Sites

This is part of a repost from my blog for young artists.  I thought it might be exciting to share with you some excellent examples of  exemplary online presence and some terrific work by very young artists. Their ages span from pre-teen to young adult.

The sites below are three brilliant examples of what very young visual artists are doing.  The first is Isabella’s beautiful blog.

http://isabellart.wordpress.com

Isabella has created three separate sections for her work. There’s the poetry section, fine art section, and fashion (her own designs).  Isabella regularly posts wonderful works in progress.  You must have a look.

http://eleanorleonnebennett.zenfolio.com  will bring you to Eleanor Leonne Bennett’s website that is full of her fantastic photography.  It is worth every minute you’ll spend on her website, enjoying her work.  I urge you to investigate every photograph.

Kellie See, at kelliesee.wordpress.com  beautifully chronicles her coursework as an art student studying illustration.  On her terrific blog, you’ll find very specific and instructive posts about what she is thinking and working through. This is what Kellie has to say about her blogging experience:

“I think blogging is fantastic. Its such a great opportunity for people to meet others that share similar interests. Since I started blogging I’ve seen some great pieces of work and read the most amazing posts by other bloggers. They are truly an inspiration for me. Blogging has opened up a whole new world to me where I can share my work and get real opinions and comments back. This is so useful and is a great way to find out what others think and to also help you decide which direction to take next. The blogging community have been fabulous and they are so friendly which makes my blogging experience all the better. I really wouldn’t be without it. Kellie :) “

Looking for some artsy inspiration on a grey cold afternoon?  Here is inspiration for literally EVERYONE.

Meet Taylor.  An artist I’ve admired since she was a small individual.   That’s the way of think of Taylor.  Sure, she was a once a child, but always so much her own person, even as a small person.  Today, Taylor is a brilliant, beautiful young individual, who will be forever, an artist.

You don’t have to take my word for it.  The proof is in her sketchbooks.  Taylor began housing her wonderings, ponderings, drawings, and writings in a kind of living journal as a very young teen.  She works in her self created sketch books to plan larger works.  She explores her experiences with and in the world, in her books.  Each page is an elegant small work of  Taylor art.

Unfortunately, my photos do not do justice to her books. Taylor employs pop outs, little kinetic pieces,  three dimensional incorporations, and folded surprises.  Some pages are simply artfully designed pencil drawings, tatoo designs or poems. But each page is created with materials you would find in most households.  No fancy art supplies.

So how about you?  Inspired yet?  If you need a little bit more of a push to get a sketchbook of your own going, look for “Portrait of a Girl”, my new book, coming in a few months. It features Taylor and many other young female artists who just might give you the affectionate kick in the pants you need to bring a personally artful dimension to your life.
