Young artist: Ami Calo.


In school, art is my favorite subject. I like it because you get to be creative and express your own ideas. Sketching is my favorite thing to do in art. I like this because I can show the details in the picture. It takes a lot of patience, but after I am done, it comes out really well.

I don't really like using paints and crayons because they can't be erased. I enjoy sketching at home. I like to use all the parts of the pencil point to make different marks.

I also like making paper collages and overlapping the different colors. It is more fun for me when I tear the paper, not cut it. When I do this, it comes out in a way that is exciting and makes me think of what it could be instead.

Art means a lot to me. I don't know what the future holds, but I will always have art in my life.
