Arts Program Student Highlight: Tyron!
Tyron is an emerging artist who appreciates an artistic process that makes him reflect deeply on the world around him. Tyron is an empath who processes his emotions through his art. He says that “His work always has meaning and emotion behind it.” Tyron is continuously trying to push himself and become better at his craft. He believes there is always more learning to be done and embraces a “beginner’s mindset.” Tyron’s preferred medium is pencil and paper. He describes it as “the best way.” He has previously been commissioned to do designs for a Philadelphia based apparel line. Tyron is starting to think about attending a university, where he hopes to play collegiate sports and major in visual arts. He is looking forward to continuing with the Media Art group in the Spring to continue developing his artistic practice. Check out Tyron's art below!
