Art Story

My art story for yearbook- posting this so I can print it out at school. @_@

“When I was in fourth grade, all my art looked like Egyptian drawings. Their heads all faced sideways and their bodies faced forward,” said Junior Sara Reinking. Since then, she’s learned the basic principles of drawing through practice and from school, and the difference shows in her art. Like Reinking, many artists at Mesa Verde started drawing at a young age. Senior Moses Terrazas has been drawing since he could hold a pencil. When was young, he drew characters from cartoons he watched, like Hey Arnold and Doug. Art isn’t just for kids, though- both Terrazas and Reinking desire a career in art someday. Their first step is college, but Terrazas says, “I was pissed off when I found out that most art colleges were private, so scholarships don’t apply.” Even if he does find a public art school, he is still deciding what he wants to major in. He wants to inspire people with his art, so any career that puts his work in the public eye is fine with him. He’s not alone in his pursuit- through the art club and gallery, many Mesa Verde artists like Terrazas and Reinking are working hard to get their art recognized.
