“Art is not just about creating but, it is also about representing who we are as an individual with our own unique style.”

Ella Hanks, Junior Artist

Hi! My name is Ella Hanks and I am a junior at Righetti High School! Art has always been apart of my life, I have been drawing ever since I was little. Art has always brought me joy and has been a fun thing to do in my free time. Art is important to our society because it allows people to freely express themselves in their own original and creative way. Producing art makes me feel proud of myself. Whenever I show my art pieces to my friends and family, they always make me feel good about myself which makes me motivated to create more pieces.

My favorite kind of art would have to be painting and digital art! My favorite medium to use would have to be acrylic paint because it is just easier to work with in my opinion. My future plans for art will be to take another art class for my senior year. I may not be going in to an art profession after school, I will always continue to create more art as a hobby! Something that I learned through art is that you are free to express yourself however you would like. Art is not just about creating but, it is also about representing who we are as an individual with our own unique style.

My art reflects about who I am because they all represent the things that I like. I always love to create pieces to show my passion.
