Art Questions

1. What do you think of art? Are you excited about this class, or does it make you freak-out a bit? Tell me about it.

I think art is fun and gives people the chance to express themselves and learn how to do different things. I am definitely excited about this class. I love art and learning more about it. I hope that we get to do more challenging things this year and I'm excited to see whats next. 

2.) "What is Art?" 

Art to me is about expressing yourself and putting yourself into your art work. Art comes in different forms and can be very inspiring. 

3.) What is your favorite thing about school? Why is it your favorite? 

My favorite thing about school is getting to see everybody. Even though I'm not close friends with everyone in my classes I still like talking to everybody. Making new friends is always fun too. 

4.) what is your least favorite thing about school? 

My least favorite thing about school is the stress that comes with it. Falling behind, hard work, tests, exams, even bullying. It can all be very stressful and makes school a lot less fun. 

5.) What kind of activities do you hate doing in school? 

Public speaking is definitely at the top of the list of activities that I hate. Talking to people is easy, but presenting something isn't. Especially if it is a large class or is worth a lot of marks. It makes students nervous and stressed. Some students have anxiety and trying to make them do something that they honestly can't do does not help. 

6.) If your learning experience in the class could be anything you wanted it to be how would you change/design it?

I would definitely want to do a lot of hands on work. Like drawing and painting and getting a say in what you would like to paint or draw. The little things that come between are not as fun in my opinion but I still do them. 

7.) Are there any art techniques you would like to learn or develop? 

I would like to learn how to draw free hand without needing ideas to look from. When I draw I find multiple pictures that inspire me and give me an idea and I draw them. I would like to be able to think of something to draw on my own. I also know that I'm not the best painter, but if I tried hard and learned more on how to do it I'm sure i would improve.

  1. Brooke, I really appreciate your honesty. Your answers make so much sense -- and I completely understand how much you dislike public speaking. I always hated it too. Let's explore a few ways to make it easier to present your thoughts without having to speak in front of people this year. I'll bet there are some great apps that you'd love to play with!
