As I was placing the items in the box I was starting off with the list given to me in class and then I started to realize what I really wanted to put into the box. Something that represented me today. Not someone I wanted to be or used to be, but who I am right now. I placed things in the box that I used everyday. My favorite perfume scent, the friendship bracelet I used to wear everyday, and a concert ticket from a show I went to recently. When I look back I will see exactly who I was 20 years ago. I'll smell the perfume I used to like, the jewelry I used to wear and the music I liked to listen to. Maybe those little things will be different or maybe they will stay the same.
In the beginning of the year I always had negative remarks towards my work. For example: this isn't good enough, it doesn't look right, I don't want to do this, etc. I learned that I must be patient and positive. While doing that my work will be more complete and satisfying to myself. I learned that everyone's artist abilities are different and that my perception and drawing of something will never be the same as someone else and therefore I cannot be mad at myself for my work not being the best of the class. No ones artwork is better than another's because we all perceive things differently. I am glad I took creative arts because not only did I draw realistic pictures, play with clay, and make sculptures, I also learned important life lessons.
