“Art makes me feel free. No matter what I create it has the potential to be something beautiful.”

Mikayla Llamas , Junior Artist

Hello my name is Mikayla Llamas. I am currently a junior in high school. Art has been a outlet for me to relax and let off stress in my everyday life. It gives me freedom of expression and the ability to be my authentic self. I think that art is important to society because it gives people like myself a sense of peace and sanity. It really is a escape from reality and a step into creativity. Art makes me feel free. No matter what I create it has the potential to be something beautiful. I love knowing there’s no right or wrong way to create art. I would say however, my favorite type of art is optical art. I think it’s fun, brave, daring, and unique to make. And my favorite medium is paper. I wanted to try something new out and I believe art was a fun learning experience for me. I enjoyed learning and growing, I will be doing art on my free time to let off steam and express myself. Art taught me many things, I learned it’s ok to color outside the lines. Art is not perfection all the time, it could be all the perfect imperfections that shape and form a master piece. It’s important to understand that not everything is perfect. Art has showed me to definitely trust the process.
