“I think that art is an amazing and beautiful way to express yourself.”

Jacquelyn Reynoso, Junior Artist

Hi, I’m Jacquelyn Reynoso and I am a Junior at Righetti High School. For as long as I can remember I have loved art and was constantly drawing. I would draw and paint things for my family, who really inspired me to get better and better. I think that art is an amazing and beautiful way to express yourself. It allows you to get all the emotions you feel out, without saying a word. Art is a major stress reliever for me. One of my favorite parts of the day is when I can put in my headphones, relax, and do my art. My favorite kind of art is drawing, I love doing realistic drawings. I also like painting as well, I have just always loved drawing. My favorite medium is graphite. I love graphite because you have a lot of control over what you are drawing, compared to painting where you have to be really relaxed. I plan on continuing to do art, for hopefully a really long time as a hobby. I have learned that I am passionate about art, I always knew that I liked it but when I am able to fully “get in the zone”, I really relax and enjoy the moment that I’m in. It is important to express yourself through your art, so that is what I try to do. My art reflects every part of me. Whether it’s me being a perfectionist or maybe the complete opposite. Each piece shows how I was feeling when I was creating it and I think that is very important.
