My current favorite art medium is oil paint. I used to use oils so often, but last year with all my other classes, I didn't have the time. Taking oil painting again this year has reminded me how much fun it is.
I come from a family of 4: my mom, my dad, my older sister, and me. We have two dogs. I have lived in California my whole life, and my favorite activities are art and volleyball.
I wanted to come to OCSA because going to a school closer to my home meant I wouldn't be able to focus on art. I would have still taken art class, but with all the other activities going on, not a lot of time would be dedicated to it. Having conservatory as a set time to solely focus on art has allowed me to improve my art skills, and being around other artists has pushed me to be better myself.
