Art means to express yourself
By Marleth Giron
Many students at Everest like to draw and show their creations to everyone. I consider myself an artist, and I like to show my drawings to people.
I first started drawing when I was around eight years old. I would draw simple drawings with my mother. I can still picture some of the drawings her and I drew together, like I remember drawing a rabbit eating a carrot.
Art means a lot to me since I consider myself an artist. Art also means a lot to me because it helps me destress from everything.
Everest freshman Molly Pigot said, “Art means to me expression and how I avoid things.”
She said she’s always liked to draw. “I took an art class in middle school and that got me more into it,” she said, adding that she “started to draw at the age of 8 or 9” and that her favorite thing to draw is faces.
“I would like to continue to draw in the future,” Pigot said.
Everest sophomore Ignatius Hayer said that he has started to like drawing more after enrolling in the Visual Arts class this year.
Hayer said he really likes drawing abstracts and working with watercolors.
“Art means to me express yourself, and it’s fun to do,” he said.
