My 2 Days At Stevenson HS

By February 5, 2010 2 Comments

This video explains how crazy it was everytime I hit the stage at Stevenson High School.

I spent 2 days this week performing for Stevenson High Schools “Odessey Art Fest” where I did 4 shows total for the 4,400+ students. Each show was about 50 minutes, 4 paintings each, and my story in between. When I step back and look at it all, I still feel like this kid from Sacramento that had this dream to create art in front of people. Along the way I learned it was a platform I can use to not only entertain, but to benefit and inspire people.

That was the message I shared with the students, that whatever your passion is, apply a purpose behind it, and just see the world with different eyes. When I returned to my Facbook Fan Page after the shows I was floored by how many students responded to the experience and that simple message. It’s events like this that remind me why I do what I do.

So all my love and gratitude to everyone at Stevenson High School! Thank you for inspiring me.

    Mr. Garibaldi.
    Your name will forever stay in my heart and in my mind because of your performance @Stevenson Highschool. I will remember that day where you inspired me to be all i can be as an artist. Before, all I wanted to do was art. I was really good at all art aspects. The school even bought a sculpture of mine. So that was when I knew I wanted to become an artist. But not too soon after I had realized, making money out of art may be a once in a lifetime thing. So I started focusing on other careers that I may enjoy for the rest of my life. Stuff I would never enjoy as much as I enjoy and love painting, drawing, and etc. just expressing my emotions through art. But when you inspired me on the stage Feb. 2 & 3 (I ditched my last odessey class to see you one more time LOL) I knew from then on I was going to start following my dreams to the fullest.

    Don’t worry I’ll remember your name when I also get famous for my artwork and how you inspired me. Just like how Denny Dent inspired you.

    Thank you. Hopefully I get too see you perform again in Cali where a lot of my filipino family is 😀
