“Art pieces are important because they allow the artists to portray emotions and significant historical events.”

Brittany Chavez, Junior Artist

My name is Brittany Chavez and I am a Junior at Righetti High School. My family has always been very talented, we have a family of musicians and artists. So, I believe I got my passion for Art from my family and that is why I strive to get better and create many more pieces. Art not only serves as a form of entertainment and is beautiful to look like. Art pieces are important because they allow the artists to portray emotions and significant historical events. Additionally, art grants the artist a way to portray a theme or story with many pieces. I feel good producing art pieces because not only is it relaxing, moreover it lets me say something with images. Sometimes words are not enough or the best way to say something important. My favorite type of art is definitely painting, I love the freedom of it since any mistakes made can be covered up. Additionally, painting is a very loose and free way of art, and there are numerous styles in painting.

My favorite mediums are graphite and acrylic paint. I have been drawing with graphite since I was young and developed a realism type of style. Therefore, painting is another of my favorites because it lets me express my other style which is more shapeless. I am unsure as to where I want to go with my plans for Art, since I would like to develop my style further and have more freedom when it comes to what I want to draw. However, a class would really keep my progress in check. In Art this year I have learned about negative and positive space, and the importance it has in drawings. For example, the negative space can guide the viewer’s eye throughout the painting, if used correctly and efficiently. I believe that my art does reflect me, since I am a realistic type of person and I like to have realism in my art pieces. That is another amazing part of art, brushstrokes and images can reflect a person in an appealing way.
