being an artist

when I was in elementary school and high school, I always believed that true art was realism and photo likenesses done in paint. I felt that the art I created wasn’t anywhere near good enough, but I ended up going to art school anyways because I couldn’t think of anything else I wanted to study. I ended up learning so much about many different artists who created with such variety in their styles and mediums. Being exposed to all this different forms of creativity was an eye-opener for me! I was able to learn and experiment and create my own style. While I do not plan on having a career solely based on my own art (I would much prefer being a gallery curator), I adore having this freedom of expression and openness I can create within my work. To any high school students who feel like they’re not good enough at art to go to art school – go for it! It’s such a rewarding experience.
