A lot can happen in a year. I guarantee that almost everybody is different now from how they were at the beginning of the school year. How they dressed, how long their hair was, how they thought, wrote, played, all probably have changed or improved. I know I have. Not only do I dress differently, write differently, sing, dance, act differently, I also view art differently. My artistic abilities have grown so much throughout the school year, I never thought that I would make half the things I made this year and be so proud of them. I am not saying I have any special artistic abilities, but I am proud based off of what I started from. It's not about being better than anyone else for me, it's about reaching my own standards. Going into this class with so little creative knowledge and coming out much more wise than I had expected. I am especially proud of my tea set, which I worked so hard on and turned out better than I could have hoped. I guess what I'm trying to say is that being in art class really made me look at different aspects of myself that I never had before. I had to think differently and I sincerely believe that I am a more creative and imaginative person as a result of this. I greatly enjoyed my time in art and although, to my dismay, I will not be in the class next year, I will take with me all the abilities and achievements that I learned and worked for with me throughout the rest of high school.
