T his concept started with my obsession with contrast throughout my work. I decided to make an experimental film because I wanted to be able to take advantage of the equipment provided to me. T he concept behind darkness vs. light has many meanings, but the main idea is that the dark represents unconsciousness and light represents consciousness. My film conveys the message of how we are all lost at one point in our lives, but we find our way eventually; some take longer than others but we all get to the point where we find ourselves. My process for making this film started with thinking of preliminary ideas, so in this state I only knew that I wanted light to be an essential part of my film, that I wanted to involve sculpture, and that I wanted to work with editing in depth. After I thought of my preliminary ideas, I then began to film as well as work on my sculpture. Once I got all my shots in I began to edit and at this point I decided that I wanted to involve many layers into my film. So I worked in depth on my editing and combined images with no relation, then after I had my sequence order together I then figured out my voice over and Page 06 recorded it. I then inserted it and worked with the sound last. Miranda Fenty | Pleasant Hill, CA Crafts My piece is a six-foot-long weaving made of yarn and recycled fabric. It depicts the sun setting behind a mountain because I find the colors of the sunset inspiring and beautiful. I wanted to portray the contrast between the stark form of the mountain, the organic shape of the foothills, and fluid progression of the sky. I was influenced by my grandparents; they live in the mountains where the landscape is both vibrant and serene. To choose fabric, I went to a thrift store and picked the garments whose colors and textures caught my attention. T his piece is a reflection of my growth this summer because I have never woven before, and I created a work of art that I am very proud of. Along with my Wearable Art, Ceramics, and Metals classes, I worked with new media and learned new skills and ways to interpret art in my Weaving class. Attending the UArts Pre-College program has helped me to realize that I want to major in crafts in college and that there is an entire world of art for me to explore. Page 07 Kevin Almeida | Miami, FL Crafts Page 08 Maggie Atkinson | Souderton, PA Graphic Design For each project, I was challenged to work within certain parameters while maintaining my vision and integrity as an artist. Most graphic designers bring their own aesthetic to their work for clients, and I enjoyed incorporating my own personal touches into the assignments given by my professors. W hen brainstorming, I considered things such as the purpose of the piece and the message I wanted to convey with it. During this program, I was very inspired by the city of Philadelphia and the vibrant life Iâ€™ve seen while living there. My work includes elements such as vivid, bright colors and patterns. I love playing with more complicated shapes and compositions, but in the end achieving balance and harmony. Page 09 Kaan Avsaroglu | Istanbul, Turkey Illustration Commonly, my art is loose and detailed differently. W hen people look at my artworks I want them to feel happy, random and bizzare. T he feeling of drawing bizzare things makes me feel exclusive about my art. Page 10 Adilia Bonilla | Perkasie, PA Sculpture I use sculpture to create my dreams so that people can touch my creations, physically and mentally. W hen a person views what I have made I want them to feel nostalgic for some old dreams they once had. Page 11 Zahirah Calloway | Miami, FL Film My film is an exploration of the thriller genre. I also experimented with editing and camera angles to evoke and manipulate the emotions of an audience. A major influence of my film is Alfred Hitchcock, who effortlessly horrifies his viewer with subtle lighting, intentional use of shadows, and camera angles. With my film I used his principles and vision to guide me in making a thriller with the intention of keeping the audience on the edge of their toes. Page 12 Amanda Cappelli | Blue Bell, PA Painting Page 13 Tatiana Cardenas | Lake Worth, FL Animation My work has currently been inspired by the sketchbooks of I am currently playing with the idea of identity Isaac Tobin and by the work of directors such as Stephen and stereotypes, for it is something that I have Daldry, Michel Gondry, and Wes Anderson. I have been been living through recently. recently inspired by the work of Jonathan Hodgson as a stepping stone for future animations. the concepts of movement in space, and I feel Some of the techniques I have experimented with include I have begun to tap into a great mix of stop motion, cut out, and mixing traditional animation with movement and visual art, working on each digital programs such as Photoshop. I find that when the frame to create moving art. Something I plan technique is expanded beyond the limits of comfort it adds to expand on even more. another level of interest in the work that I do. Page 14 In this program I have been able to grasp China Carr | Miami, FL Sculpture I create to make myself feel grounded to a life that I feel twice removed from, itâ€™s a way to push ideas and understand them. I like for my work to have the ability to conjure up ideas and stir emotions in the viewer, especially if it is different from my own. I work with objects that people can identify with, skewing and abstracting through placement and use. I work with own initial thought, but like my work to make its own decisions as the process threads out. I am attempting to understand the multi-faceted network of actions, reactions and change in people. I am interested in what moves us. Page 15 Melanie Coffey | Pawtuck, CT Film Our short film Envelopes was the first narrative Iâ€™ve ever done, and I chose to do a narrative piece because of the equipment that we were able to use. T he dialogue would be heard clearly because of the boom and sound equipment and the scenes and action would move smoothly with the editing software Final Cut Pro. Ella Farmer and I worked on the film together which worked well, so that we could hit ideas off of each other with shots and lighting and play with the script until it sounded right to both of us. One thing we wanted throughout the script writing process was for the ending to be realistic. We didnâ€™t want any large reunion at the end with hugs and the characters saying how much they love each other, so we started to make it a really awkward ending scene and then just decided to make the two of them not get together in the end. Page 16 Emily Craig | Gibbstown, NJ Sculpture T he art I create is usually simple yet beautiful and in the tiniest ways has a slight darkness to it. I do this because there is always darkness to everything but also everything dark has light and beauty to it. I know Iâ€™ve done something right to a piece of work if when people look at it and their eyes light up, they just donâ€™t even know what to say about it. Seeing their reaction is one of the many amazing reasons to be an artist. Page 17 Sean Dale | Lambertville, NJ Sculpture I work in Art because I feel the need to express emotions, fears, and reflections that I have of the world and of the experiences that Iâ€™ve had in it. T hough my decisions and different choices of mediums, I attempt to place in my feelings, so that my audience might be able to understand my point of view. My current work is focused on the themes that have influenced my life. T hrough the art I create, I hope to convey my messages, however subtly, so that they become not a monster or hero but symbols of something more, something greater than what just appears in my art. Page 18 Erin Dowd | Cupertino, CA Crafts My artwork is inspired by nature and Victorian-era fashion and culture. My weaving piece is inspired by the different elements and textures of nature. T he lack of an overall pattern is meant to symbolize the organic, imperfect quality of nature. My belt buckle was inspired by the novel Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters, a historical fiction novel set in London at the end of the Victorian era. Page 19 Ella Farmer | Carlisle, PA Film For my video, Envelopes, I worked with Melanie Coffey. We both wanted to create a narrative, but we wanted to concentrate on different aspects of movie making. I wanted to focus on creating interesting camera shots, editing, and storytelling. For our story we didn’t want a sappy ending like all other “romantic” movies, so we made a more realistic ending where the two people don’t get together. T his was so we could have more natural acting. I enjoyed making the camera shots interesting, and editing them together in the end. Our film turned out just the way I wanted it to. Page 20 Amanda Garrell | Trenton, NJ Experimental Costume Design Page 21 Cristina Garcia | Barcelona, Spain Film T he pre-college experience at the University of the Arts My work is inspired by the idea of the emotions, changed my perception on the way to watch movies. that’s why the main character of the movie Exercises and projects were part of almost every class, shows her emotions when she is hounded by and it challenged me to think about myself and to look the paparazzi, and when she realizes that her for solutions and fresh ideas. boyfriend cheated on her and more. My project in filmmaking class was a challenge because Being here has been a very good experience, I don’t have a high level of English so for me to write and because I have learned a lot of different things. script it’s not easy. Although at class we used high T he fact that nobody was judging me has helped quality cameras and tripods that before this program for trying new things. I haven’t used. Page 22 Alexandra Feick | Annandale, NJ Graphic Design Page 23 Vasilisa Gladysheva | Brookline, MA Crafts Art is a satisfying way for me to express my thoughts My work is realistic because I like to study each and feelings. I have worked with many different media animal or figure and create accurate proportions. including charcoal, black and white photography, digital photography and metals, but ceramics is my favorite. I love working with clay because of the limitless possibilities of shape, texture, and color. Page 24 In my recent work, I have been using animals to show human feelings. T his is an interesting topic for me because I think about and express certain characteristics that animals are known for that I sculpt mostly animals and figures. I enjoy creating connect to human habits or actions. T his way life forms because I can express feeling through I can show my opinion on human behavior the gesture and expression. through animals. Emmanuel Gray | Philadelphia, PA Painting Page 25 Lya Hernandez | Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Animation Page 26 Samantha Hesse | Hyde Park, NY Graphic Design In my time at UArts I have learned to challenge myself I am greatly inspired by the people around me, and remain creative even when given requirements that their differences and quirks and the city of may make this difficult â€“ a challenge every graphic Philadelphia with all of its diversity and history. designer must face in the real world. I was given projects and challenges that helped me grow in both skill and creativity. T he program taught me to work with what I was given and to display those things in an interesting and creative way that gave the viewer the In the future years, I hope to continue studying the arts and furthering my skills. I hope to take all that I have learned in my time at the University of the Arts with me as I go. information I needed to convey. Page 27 Ashleigh Jugan | Amherst, MA Graphic Design Coming into the Pre-College program, I had no idea what graphic design was really about. I was originally in the photography concentration, and when that was cancelled, graphic design seemed like the next best thing. I had no idea how much I would learn! I never realized how much work goes into placing images and type or picking the color, size and texture of things. I feel like graphic design will help me a lot in the future when I am studying to be a photojournalist. Drawing was another class I was signed up for. I have never taken a drawing class before, but I am so glad I had the opportunity to take the class. I think that the drawing class really reinforced my foundation for art. For my elective I chose experimental photography. I learned so much about different kinds of manipulations, whether it was in camera, in the darkroom or post process, as well as different kinds of photography itself. Taking experimental photo broadened my range of knowledge about photography. Page 28 David Kealy | Holmdel, NJ Sculpture I work with wood and fabric because it reminds me of the military and construction. I begin a piece by thinking about utilizing materials that people donâ€™t normally think about. I know a piece is done when it looks like sketches on paper. W hen my work is going well I am filled with a sense of enlightenment and when people view my work, Iâ€™d like them to find my humorous message. Page 29 Aaron Kohn | Mount Kisco, NY Film Hatred I created Hatred with the idea that almost every scene would be different. Hatred borders on experimental because I did not focus mainly on creating a fully functional story, but almost leaving many things up to the viewer. T he use of special effects and a variety of sounds and music create a very different atmosphere for each scene, and the movie intentionally does not have a fluid sound signature. Each scene is different in order to convey different emotions. Page 30 Ashley Laliberte | Narberth, PA Crafts Page 31 Veronica Hahr | Maplewood, NJ Painting One day, I picked up a pencil, bought a cheap sketchbook from Barnes and Noble, and began to draw. It was the end of freshman year, and I had absolutely no talent. It took me forever to be able to draw a simple eye, or a head the right shape. I could only cartoon. It was a few years later that I was sent off to this summer program at the University of the Arts, but by then I was prepared. I was drawing semi- realistically, had about six sketchbooks, and a black bin full of every medium I knew of. But there was one thing I lacked – confidence. I wasn’t proud of my artwork, or even myself. In this program I gained confidence and discovered that if you focus on the tiny details in life, you’re going to miss the bigger picture. In watercolor, you always have to focus big and be free and loose otherwise you’ll overwork a painting. I chose my watercolor flower piece because I was able to become loose and confident in my artwork. In just under a month, my amount of sketchbooks has doubled, I’ve discovered new media and drawing techniques, and I’ve learned a lot of lessons that I will always remember. Art isn’t about precision; it’s about saying things which there are no words for. I know that I will continue to improve and find new methods of expressing myself. I never thought in a million years that I would actually be good at art, but here I am. I’m older, more mature and much less insecure than the freshman girl who picked up a pen and paper one day and drew for no other reason than boredom. Page 32 Lauren Hemingway | Miami, FL Graphic Design My artwork is focused on shape and composition. I am concerned with the overall layout of the piece and blocking in the composition from the start. I begin my work by sketching out concepts on a small scale and then transferring to the computer with the intention of recreating the concept and then refining the design. I know I am finished with a piece when there is a unity or rhythm throughout the piece that is dynamic. My goal as a graphic designer is to communicate information effectively and concisely in a way that engages the viewer. My time at the University of the Arts this summer has broadened my exposure to graphic design by immersing me in typography, digital imaging, and design classes. T his program has given me the confidence to solve a variety of design solutions. Page 33 Ashley Lee | Cherry Hill, NJ Painting + Printmaking Page 34 Nina Lee | Cherry Hill, NJ Illustration I’m Nina Lee and my work is inspired by children’s books. T he artist that inspires me most is Maurice Sendak. One of my works is based on Maurice’s Nina and Larry Chertoff mural. I like to draw childlike characterized animals and children. Instead of Photoshop, I prefer using traditional medium such as watercolor, pencil, and pen.

Page 37 Selene Means | Irmo, SC Film W hile listening to a Pink Floyd song, a story came to mind. I brought forth my little daydream into reality with this narrative film. I began with drawing out a storyboard of what I saw and then wrote a script from that fleshing out the plot. I used all my previous experience from the visual arts and photography to focus on the visuals while also using new knowledge from the program. I wanted to explore further my interest in editing and gave myself a challenge in the style I told the story. I sent a message in my film about attaining the courage to face what should be done and how obstacles in life are often the same. Page 38 Olivia Miller | Ellicott City, MD Film Flash Drive In our film our main focus was a combination of match cut editing and artificial sound effects. We wanted to make the film similar to a Chinese action film, exaggerated sound effects and intense fight scenes. We also took a darker approach to a majority of our film because we felt it would give a more intense feeling than brighter lighting. All of these effects and edits were used so that we could get a more intense and fast-paced feel to our movie. Page 39 Devon Monaghan | Hainsport, NJ Painting + Printmaking Page 40 Lizzy O’Donnell | Cherry Hill, NJ Illustration I have two guidelines to thinking of a piece, one being HCC. W hen you don’t know what to draw, think of Heroes/Heroines, Creatures, or Cats. T hinking of ideas is difficult, but by thinking of the three things I love to draw the most helps me get excited about devising a story to illustrate. T he second being that you should always think up a story before you even think about what your drawing will look like. Before I draw, I brainstorm ideas for an interesting background for a character, which can help fill in loose ends and later while sketching (but cats help too). More important than the character’s background is how they’ll carry out the future, because that’s what you’ll be illustrating. T he future is so important, not just for fictional characters but for all of us. As I continue growing and life gets harder, picking up new skills and thinking of fresh ideas will make growing as an artist much easier and my story much more interesting. Page 41 Peter Oâ€™Hara | West Chester, PA Illustration My artwork in general has always tried to tell a story or express some emotion. Many of my pieces that are from my imagination are mostly action oriented, and I really try to show the action in the viewing angles. I feel that I have a unique drawing style and look forward to improving it. Page 42 04 Adrienne Pitchford | Clarks Summit, PA Graphic Design For my studies, I focused mostly on typography and graphic design. I am inspired by the works of James Victore and how his works bring out serious subjects in an impacting way. Also as an inspiration, Stefan Sagmeister uses the world around him, such as found items and his own body, to create shapes and words. T he use of type in my quote studies and the placement of text helps guide the reader around subjects, isolating different parts of the type and drawing attention to certain words or shouting out to certain phrases. In the expressive quote study, I created the background by scanning a piece of paper that I scribbled on to show the insanity and darkness of the quote. T hrough the process of designing in this program and these studies, I am very pleased with how the finished products came out. T hrough the studies, I have learned how to make my pieces more interesting, as well as show me what I am able to do in this field that is not just through using the computer, but also through sketching, collaging, and even just scribbling on a piece of paper. Page 43 Patrick Francois | Avondale, PA Film Flash Drive In our film our main focus was a combination of match cut editing and artificial sound effects. We wanted to make the film similar to a Chinese action film, exaggerated sound effects and intense fight scenes. We also took a darker approach to a majority of our film because we felt it would give a more intense feeling than brighter lighting. All of these effects and edits were used so that we could get a more intense and fast-paced feel to our movie. Page 44 Ashlyn Sanchez | Newhall, CA Sculpture W hen I create work, I want to make something with a soul. I primarily work with organic materials such as bones and skins of animals in order to create a new form and personality of a previously living entity. I also dwell on mythology and ancient cultures, as well as emotions and memories. Transformation is a common theme in my work. W hen I plan for a specific piece, they usually start out as a dream or a doodle of sorts. Sometimes they are sketches, but my works tend to evolve during the process of creation and thus donâ€™t turn out how I originally planned. Page 45 Alp Seyrekbasan | Istanbul, Turkey Graphic Design In my opinion Design should be smart and also elegant. T hat’s why I create my Artwork in a way artistically but intelligently. Without an Impact or any Attraction, design doesn’t make any sense. Design should find the balance between aesthetic and simplicity. T he beauty of the design comes from its plain form. Because I believe in that, my graphic designs portray the beauty of being plain and being understandable. As seen in my “spoken word” logo I mix the elements of aesthetic and simplicity to appeal to the viewer’s both emotions and ideas. On one hand the connection of the letters “d” and “n” builds a static, strong and simple word structure, on the other hand the italic form of the letter “w” makes the design look more stylish. As I come to an end I want to thank the Pre-College Program. Without that I would never be so sure and confident about myself and my artwork. I can proudly say that it changed my perspective on the world of art. Page 46 Helen Showalter | Cape Coral, FL Graphic Design Page 47 Annie Silverman | Pleasantville, NY Digital Photography Page 48 Perri Specter | Gladwyne, PA Illustration Iâ€™m Perri and Iâ€™m interested in the field of Illustration. My artwork usually has a wide variety of tones and colors. If I had to describe my artwork in three words they would be vibrant, bubbly, and unique. T he vibrancy comes from the color combinations I use and how they depict certain feelings I want the viewers to feel themselves when they look at it. T he bubbly side of my pieces was inspired from anime and cartoons I watch that make me exaggerate the characters proportions a little. And I try to be as original and unique with my pieces as I can despite the many artists that inspire me. I love to see how my drawings improve over the years, I will never stop improving. I will continue my quest for becoming the greatest artist I can be. Page 49 Natalie Summers | Doylestown, PA Illustration Every time I sit down and work on a piece of art, I ask myself every few seconds if my piece is translating the kind and level of emotion that I want it to. If it is, then I have succeeded. I like to base a great deal of my art around connecting surreal and realistic styles. If it hasnâ€™t been done, then I want to try it. I love things with bold, bright colors, but I love experimenting with more gentle tints as well. If it makes someone think, feel a certain way, or react in a specific way, itâ€™s art. Page 50 Bessy Vang | Fresno, CA Film My biggest inspiration in my film touches base with my religion, Shamanism, the belief of spirits, showing how one must be careful when receiving something from a “known” stranger or to not pick up things off the streets. However, my concept of making my film mysterious, allowed me to show how things in life, for example love, are just a big mystery and that we have the opportunity to take the risk or not. In the program, I’ve learned how to shoot in manual mood on the cameras we were given to use and new editing skills that I didn’t know of before. I was also able to get access to editing programs like Final Cut Pro, Motion, and Soundtrack Pro for music, to create my film. T his pre-college program has really taught me new skills and techniques about Film I didn’t know existed. It has inspired me to achieve a career in Filmmaking, and reassured me how much I love filmmaking. Page 51 Elia Vives | Barcelona, Spain Film T he focus of my artwork is urban items, the fashion and the daily lives of people. My work always has a relationship with the people, the feelings and the emotions. During the summer program I have worked a lot of different topics for my projects from abstract subject to others more common. I explore different ways to make film and now I have a large vision of cinema and the techniques used throughout the history of the cinema. In my final project I have chosen to focus the film on celebrities lives. My objective was show the spectators what are beliefs and the reactions of a famous girl who is hounded. Page 52 Khaleel Walker | Philadelphia, PA Animation Work from Khaleel Walkerâ€™s Graphic Design elective. > My name is Khaleel J. Walker, and I participated in the Pre-College Summer Institute of University of the Arts. I was in Animation as my concentration. All of my work describes different parts of Animation. For instance, one shows a ball bouncing while another shows picking up an object. I added these for my artist statement because they depict what I learned throughout the program. Furthermore, animation is interesting because you have the ability to bring your drawings to life. Page 53 Roya Weidman | Kintnersville, PA Sculpture Combining natural objects with what we deem as â€œunnatural,â€? I create a skewed vision of everyday life. My work is drawn from personal experiences that I am not particularly fond of and my works are molded straight from mind to physical form. A material is nothing but a way to make ideas more apparent, so my use of them varies. My work aims to compel its viewers to remember their own not-so-golden memories and to bring forth feelings that they try to themselves, while still Page 54 remaining aesthetically pleasing. In this process, I hope to create something beautiful. Rachel Wells | West Chester, PA Illustration T here is wonder and beauty in everything around us: the trees in a forest, the millions of creatures on the ocean floor, the skyscrapers in a big city, and the seemingly endless extent of human willpower and creativity. T his is something I think about every day, yet most people seem to take lifeâ€™s treasures for granted, preferring to focus and stress over their own lives. I wish that my art takes people away from reality, even if for a little while, and to open their eyes to the truly beautiful things of the world, whether they are insignificant, strange, or horrifying. I wish to create stories through my art, even if those stories have to fit on a single page. I wish that someday my art changes someoneâ€™s life.
