Over the past year art became my stress relief, my life speed up 3x what it used to be and creating art became the only thing to slow it down, even for just an hour a day. By having required projects I was able to fine what I enjoyed doing, what I was good at and what kept the world at a stand still for those 60 minutes. Projects I didn't think I would ever like such as sketching and shading became my favorites to do, they also often took me the longest to complete because I became a perfectionist as I became more passionate about what I was doing. Thank you for allowing me to find myself and be myself while in your class. You are an amazing role model for young girls to be able to look up to each day.
