THE ADVANTAGES OF GOING TO AN ART SCHOOL

McKenzie Morgan

As a senior at Douglas Anderson, there are many advantages to going to an arts school. For one, arts school helps you get your foot in the door. When most of your teachers are, in my case, also professional writers, you already have connections you can make as a graduate. To have the opportunities at hand to create art and have it showcased through the years in various events is profoundly effective in becoming an artist of any type. Watching other students pursue their dreams is also inspiring.

 

 

Going to an arts school has opened up opportunities I never thought were possible. There are multiple annual performances for all arts areas, individual arts area performances, and an array of tools to help perfect the art a student is studying. There’s a lot of professionalism that comes with being an arts student. I learn techniques that I otherwise wouldn’t learn until taking the same courses at a college level. I’m expected to perform at a capability that goes beyond just being able to hold a pencil.

 

Arts schools are not a sham, nor are they just to enforce students with higher test scores to broaden their horizons. Almost everyone I’ve met through school has been extremely proud to be going to DA, and fully inspired to continue their life as an artist. There’s a lot of passionate energy that I feel every day as I walk through the halls.  My school has incredible students that balance both their academic and arts interests while being fully immersed in the things they love.

 

Tips for Styling the Basic Tee

We all have those mornings where nothing is going as planned, time is fleeting and on top of all that we just can't muster up the energy to put any apparent effort into our outfit. Well thank God for basic tee's. Here are a couple tips and tricks to easily styling a basic tee without looking basic.

1. The Classic Way

Check out this girl's cheeky spin on the classic White Tee & Jeans look which never seems to go out of style. She offsets this great off-white, oversized tee with these fitted high-waisted denim shorts that are great for elongating the legs, which in this case, is necessary per her very tall, snake-skin boots that give this otherwise simple look that extra "umph". Notice how she opted for a nice and sleek ponytail which allows for her shoes to be main attraction of her outfit and eliminates any extra fuss.

2. The Casual & Care-Free Way

When you see the ever-trendy Pop-Culture Goddess, Beyonce, wearing something new you ask no questions. You just figure out how you can wear it too, and fortunately enough for you this ironic "Kale" tee is available right here courtesy of the Inventory Room. bey kept it pretty casual and care-free in this outfit with a beanie, her sleeves rolled up, and a well-fitted pair of jeans no doubt. Notice how (even though the pictures's in black and white) we can tell that she opted for a bold lip in order to refrain from looking like an ultra slouch.

3. The Creative Way

What I love most about this outfit is the creativity. This young lady takes a basic tan scoop-neck tee and tucks the front right half of the shirt into her pants for the illusion of an asymmetric hem line immediately transforming the otherwise basic shirt into something modern and chic. Continuing with the modern and chic theme, she then paired the shirt with these liquid-leather pants which steps the outfit up another level and makes it evening appropriate. Notice how she kept her makeup and shoes pretty demure taking into consideration the volume of her hair and the boldness of the rest of her outfit.
