Hello, I am Elisa Lopez, I’m a student at Righetti high school. I was born and raised in Santa Maria California. I wanted to take art as a class to learn different types of art and what goes into it. I feel as art is important to a society because people may express different emotions through art. To our society people may not like what other people draw so each person communicates differently throughout the process of art. Producing art makes me feel calm because art isn’t something that you can do fast, it takes time and effort and learning from mistakes to become better at it. My favorite kind of art has to be collage because it’s something that I enjoy doing and it shows me how patient you have to be for the final product. My favorite medium is paper because even thought it takes a while to finish it makes you be patient and do everything little by little. My plans in art are to keep practicing and try to get better overtime. In the future I want to take another art class because it’s very relaxing. I have learned that art is all about focusing on the art piece and take time to make it look as good as you are able to make it. I like that creating art teaches me to be patient and take my time.
