I have been doing art for as long as I can remember. From the time I was in Kindergarden to my senior year in high school I've been doing arts and crafts. I've had art teachers, vacation bible school leaders, and my parents teaching me how to create things my whole life. I usually only recieve art instruction when I sign up for art courses. I've completed all sorts of art projects including paintings, clay, abstract, landscapes and all other types of activities. I had two very good art instructors in high school and they were very critical and rewarding and that probably is why I enjoy art as much as I do. I've had a very broad range of activities from drawing with charcoal and pencils to painting and sculptings. For the most part most of my art activities weren't holiday centered they were more of your own imagination and idea's. All of my art projects were graded on pretty specific grading rubrics. It measured how much you worked on it and made sure that you followed all of the necessary guidelines. I have had a great experience with art in my past and I'm excited to learn more about it. My strengths in art I would say would be that I really enjoy drawing and shading pictures of things and my weakness is that I don't really know that much about the history of art and where it all came from. Art relates to society very much so. Advertising is used everywhere you go and you wouldn't have that without art skills. I am very excited to learn more about the history of art and sharpen up my old art skills.
