Title of Art Piece: There’s Always Time For Tea
Student/Artist’s Name: Briana Berner
School: Lathrop High School
Artist Statement: I have a horrible tendency to overextend myself and become stressed out and frenzied. When this happens I begin to lament about having no time for anything I enjoy, such as relaxing and drinking a cup of tea. One day while I was complaining about this a friend of mine turned to me very seriously and said, “Briana, there is always time for tea.” For some reason the statement stuck in my mind and I often repeat it to myself when I start to feel too busy. I made this piece as a reminder that no matter what’s going on in your life you should never forget to take the time that you need for yourself. You should always make time for tea.
