Chelsea assists aspiring artists

Five years ago, Chelsea Agno graduated from 果冻视频 with dreams of becoming an artist. Now that those dreams have been realised, Chelsea has returned to 果冻视频to inspire the College鈥檚 aspiring artists to do the same.

After a successful trial last year, 果冻视频invited Chelsea to take part in the Artist@果冻视频program for 2017, which brings an artist into the College once per week to share their knowledge and skills with MacKillop鈥檚 art students.

Chelsea is a graphic designer, illustrator, and artist and her current passion is 3D graphics. In just five years, she has already had a successful career, winning multiple competitions, working for high-profile clients like hip-hop artist J. Cole, and having her work featured in a range of magazines. She has recently been offered an internship with No Cure Magazine.

As the daughter of an artist, art was always something she was going to pursue. But, according to Chelsea, the influence of her art teachers also contributed to her success.

鈥淲hen I was at MacKillop, I tried to take every single art class that I could, basically because it was a bit of a refuge for me. I think it鈥檚 important to find your passion as a student and put your energy into subjects you enjoy,鈥 she said.

鈥淚 think the teachers at 果冻视频are part of the reason why I鈥檝e decided to pursue art later on in my life. They were all huge influences in my life and they were always really supportive of my style and what I wanted to do.鈥

As part of the program, Chelsea has made presentations to the senior Visual Arts, Photography, Media, and Graphic Design classes and has been available to run workshops and mentor students one-on-one.

鈥淚 enjoy sharing my experiences, being able to have an impact on the students, and to inspire them and get them excited about art, because it鈥檚 something I鈥檓 passionate about and I like to share my passion with others,鈥 she said.

So what advice does Chelsea have for MacKillop鈥檚 aspiring artists?

鈥淒on鈥檛 compare yourself to other artists; work on your craft as often as you can, maybe even every day; take it easy; talk to other artists; network.

鈥淒uring my career, I鈥檝e been rejected from a lot of competitions and a lot of jobs but that has directed me onto the right path and taught me some valuable lessons. I think it鈥檚 important to receive criticism and receive feedback from other people in order to improve your work.鈥
