I love art because it allows me to be able to express myself and to get out all of my feelings.
Art allows me to make people smile or think when they see my work.
Art makes me happy because it’s a way of life for me. If I didn’t have art in my life, then I would be nothing.
I would just be sad and lonely.
All of, or most of, my friends are artists as well.
Sometimes we envy each other because our styles are different and some of our finished pieces look really good.
Rainier sophomore Alex Betts said, “I have been drawing for as long as I can remember, so it has always been a part of me as a person. My type of art is anime-inspired and semi-realistic anime.”
In contrast, Rainier sophomore Ashley Muniz said she’s been doing art for about two and a half years, but she doesn’t have a specific style. “I am more on being creative than using skill.”
Personally, I always draw, even in class.
That’s why I get into trouble because I always draw on the table and not pay attention to the lesson.
If I didn’t have art in my life, I don’t know where I would be.
I can’t think of what my life would be like without it.
It makes me feel safe, like it’s a place where I can just escape from everything.
I feel like art has not only had a big impact on my life, but others as well.
As Muniz explained, “Art has changed my life because it has opened my creative mind to new opportunities that I never would have experienced.”
