A: I’m in 12th grade this year, and my name is Christine. I started art when I was young and I’ve always had interest for art.
Q: We decided to interview you because of your artwork of the Arizona Tea. What were the general instructions given for this project?
A: The point of this project was to create a ‘deconstruction piece,’ where we start by drawing the original picture, which we got to choose. Then on the second piece, we had to break down the picture and deconstruct it. The third one was meant to be the total deconstruction of the originally replicated picture.
Q: You mentioned that you got to choose your own picture. What caused you to choose this specific scene?
A: Actually, I was sort of in a hurry when I took that picture... It was assigned to us (to choose a scene) and the Arizona Tea was the only thing I saw at the moment. I was in Hawaii in the hotel room at that time and since that was all I saw, I took a picture of it. But it turned out pretty well.
Q: What exactly do you like about your artwork?
A: I like how I got to replicate the image similarly to how it originally looked. I think that in that sense, I did well.
