Project Proposal

Core Concept

My plan is to document an instructor at The Crucible art school. I hope to learn about why they started working there, how they teach, and they’re experiences at the school.

Who

I need to pick a specific  instructor who is available, but I hope to follow one of their Blacksmiths or Arc Welders.

Where

The Crucible is located on 1260 7th Street Oakland, California. I have taken many classes there and love its unique feel and the creativity it inspires. Beyond that, it is a community driven institution, offering free classes to local youth, teaching art and academic classes, and holding fund raisers.

What

The project is, ideally, about one specific teacher, art they make, and their impact on their students.

When

My project will be about current events, with a brief mention on The Crucible’s history.

Audience

The target audience is the others in my LMW class, as well as artists and those interested in in “industrial art.”

How

I will be a narrator as well as someone who has personal experience with the school.

Why

The Crucible is an amazing wonderland of creativity; an inferno of imagination and a melting pot of inspiration and community. In my experience, The Crucible is not as well known as it deserves, as most people I talk to about it have never heard of the school. I want to help spread the word and and hopefully persuade more people to get involved with The Crucible.

Story

Until I find an instructor to follow, I am unsure how the story will progress. However, I know it will show not only their experiences at the school, but the prepossesses they use to create art from flame.

Me

I felt that if I was to have this site, I’d need to have a shot of me somewhere. Though I personally don’t like how I look in pictures.

I found it rather amusing to see everyone standing around taking selfies for school.

A shot of the poster for the film I helped make in MSV 1 and 2, “Frank the Vampire”. And of course, my name is one of the ones cut off at the bottom

A little example of my character creating: Leona the Gargoyle. While this isn’t my most recent work, its the one I’m happiest with.

The book I’m currently working on. I picked up the first on after hearing everyone talking about tit and fell in love. These are definitely my favorite books I’ve read.
