Eliza Devirian

I have many childhood memories of painting and drawing in the backyard with my mother's old watercolor kit. Most of these artworks were of characters that I created. Eventually I began to take classes to learn about perspective and proportions to make my artwork more realistic.

My subject matter expanded to landscapes, still-lives, and architecture. I love many different mediums, but in the end, I usually end up using graphite or color pencils.

My future plans… Though I'm not going into an art major for college. I still want to continue to improve my skills and keep drawing and painting as a hobby. No matter what I end up doing in the future, drawing will always be a good stress relief activity as well as a way to channel my thoughts and creativity. I will continue to carry around a sketchbook when I travel and draw things that I want to remember.

My advice for my younger OCSA Classmates-
My advice would be to try every medium and style of art because you never know which one you may grow to love. Going into OCSA, I mostly did black and white portraits, however as an OCSA senior student, I've grown to love color pencil, watercolor, oil painting and many other mediums.
