Ivet Machuca, senior artist

Hi, I’m Ivet Machuca and I’m a senior at Righetti. Art is essential to society because it helps people express themselves in something other than words. Art makes me feel happy and free because I know I can create whatever I desire and it’ll still have a meaning to me. My favorite form of art has to be painting with acrylics, watercolors and pastels. I would have loved to take another art class at Righetti but I’m a senior, even though I won’t be taking another class at Righetti I truly enjoyed the class I did take and I will continue expressing myself through art after high school. I feel like I got the most that I could out of this art class because I got the opportunity to try out new forms of art such as collages and juxtapositions. My art is something that I’ll always continue doing because its one of the only ways that I’ll ever be able to get my message across, express myself and that’s something that I’m forever grateful for.
