Katie Stein, Senior Artist

My name is Katie Stein and I am a senior at Righetti High School.  I have been making art for most of my life.  I love making art because it distracts me from reality and lets me feel free.  My favorite art to make is when I use acrylic paint because it is very relaxing and pretty.  I’ve learned from art that it’s okay to make mistakes; I’ve became more patient with myself because of this.  I’ve also learned that I shouldn’t feel bad that my art isn’t ‘perfect’ because perfection isn’t a necessity to be beautiful.
