NCA197 Navajo Cultural Arts Practicum Student, Weaver
Our classes started off with a virtual SWAIA Scavenger Hunt. But the other activities we did in this class were also fun. I learned how to write my Artist statement and Artist biography and how to take photos of not only my weavings but also my paintings. And I liked that I got to learn new information that I never took the time to learn in high school - for example - I got to interview my grandma about her knowledge of weaving! There is so much to learn from our own families!
Also, I loved getting a chance to see my classmates' artwork. They really amazed me because we choose different topics, weaving, moccasin making, silversmithing. It was neat because I got to see different forms at art like when I got to the local flea market in Tuba City. And I missed the flea market during the pandemic!
