I am an artist?

I love art. I love doodling and painting and building with clay. I adore creating. The thing is that I haven't had any kind of art class since I was in the primary grades of elementary school...even then it was my classroom teacher. No art teacher...ever. No wonder I have no clue, but I love it. 

I've taken some online art classes that have taught me to dive into it. My love for art supersedes my embarrassment at my results. Actually, I kind of love the results. I found some paintbrushes that look like pens and now sometimes I paint in my notebook. 

It's messy and smudgy and so much fun! It brings me so much joy when I look back on it. I remember the struggle to create it and I laugh when I see what I actually created. 

I see what the art teachers accomplish with our middle school students and I'm in awe. I'm so jealous of the kids that they get to attend these amazing classes. I hope they know how lucky they are. Art is something I feel like I missed in my own education, but no more!
