Hi friends. I’m new to Saylor! This is not only my first class, but my first time logging in and doing my homework mom should be so proud right?
I’m super excited about this Art History class. As a little girl, I LOVED writing stories. My mom would buy me coloring books, but I’d always chose few pieces of scratch paper over the Little Mermaid coloring pages (sorry not sorry). I’d say writing has been my first exposure to art. But as I’ve grown older I’ve become more and more fond of any form of art basically, especially fine art.
Lately I’ve been playing around a bit with watercolor paints & it’s been a blast. I’ve fallin completely in love with the progression following art. I have loved seeing my abilities grow as I’ve kept trying & practicing. I have loved it so much, I recently branched out & purchased some tubes of gouache paints to take a shot at, which has also been super fun.
I’ve been trying to develop my own style. That has been the most challenge aspect of exploring the arts for me. I’ve seen so many things I love. That is a big reason why I chose to take this course. To get a taste of more styles and to see what feels like me. I hope to learn about portraits, sketching, abstract art, and basically anything that will feed my raging creative hormones.
