Young artist.

Art is me! I tend to be observant and creative. During art class, my mind runs wild. I can barely choose a topic to focus on.

I often experiment with different types of art, but I mostly like portraiture. Sometimes I draw portraits of my brothers, sister or cousins. My favorite drawing media are pencils and Sharpie[R] markers. I also enjoy sketching nature and working outdoors.

My overall favorite activity in art class is making clay sculptures. Clay is fantastic because you don't need an eraser to correct mistakes. I also like making pottery.

I love art and art loves me! No one and nothing can ever change that.
