Write up your art story: What is art to you? How does it fit in to your life? What do you want to learn about in this class?
To me art means a lot of things. Art can be a way for me to express how I’m feeling, a stress relief, or even something to do when bored. When I was younger my favorite thing to do was go to a plaster gallery and paint ceramics. I think once my parents noticed, that was when I joined an art class. I ironically enough I did art in Zelda’s for a few years. Doing art in Zelda’s was always so structured but I learnt a lot from it. Even though its an art store they didn’t let us use the black paint and we had to mix brown and navy paint to create black. Small thing like that made Zelda’s worth it. Once I got to high school art became so much more to me. I loved it and went above and beyond what was required for my projects. I even had to stay in for lunch to finish them. This all lead my to take A.P art in my junior year of high school. Being in A.P art was like being let loose in a play ground. I was able to paint, draw, and carve whatever I wanted and everything was supplied to me. That year I lived in the art room. This all lead to me taking Art History in my senior year. All I can say is that my favorite time period was Ancient Egypt. Something about it, I just loved. Meanwhile I haven’t done serious art for maybe two years except for small things like color war banners and mascots
