My favorite art medium right now would be oil painting because I feel like it’s just not too challenging for me but also not too easy. It still challenges me a lot but in a way that doesn't make me want to give up and I find it fun to work with.
I live in long beach with my mom, brother, and my dead hamster. RIP.
I chose to go to OCSA rather than a local school just because I didn't really feel any interest in any other school I was looking at. I really wanted to continue with art in high school but the art programs at my local high schools just didn't interest me right now and I felt that my skills would not really be challenged and I felt like I wouldn't really learn much there. Then, someone suggested that I try out for OCSA so I did and here we are now.
