What has been your prior exposure to visual art? Has it been primarily from your family? School? Social activities? Personal explorations? Do you make art? If so, what kind? What is the medium you use? What kind of style is it? Who is your audience? If you haven’t made any art, have you ever wanted to? What kind?
I had exposure to art in both elementary school and middle school. However, I never considered myself to be an artsy person until later in life. I gravitated to art, specifically watercolors, due to a prolonged period of stressful life events. I found that the application, the trial and error is the reason I find the hobby so fulfilling for myself. I am self-taught, however am interesting in pursuing art classes at some point in my future.
As for my art style, I feel its still developing while my subject matter alternates depending on my interests. I enjoy whimsical illustrations (think turn of the century children's folk tales) as well a human anatomy but I do not limit myself. A major part of the fun is new subject matter.
Aside from my own hobby, I also run a social media account that showcases a wide selection of art styles.
I'm really looking forward to this class and broadening my understanding of art!
