My name is Makayla Borgman and I am a freshman at Zeeland West High School. This is my first year as an art student is high school, but I have always been fascinated with art. My grandma, taught me a lot throughout the years and I always looked up to her. My goal with art is to continue to grow as an artist, and learn new techniques. I originally signed up for the Advanced Art Class, but as I look back on it, I would not be where I am today, without the helpful skills that I learned within the Beginning Art Class. I thoroughly enjoyed this class, with all the fun art projects and also making new friends. I learned a lot during my semester of art, including: how to use placement and location while drawing, how to use value and texture to make my scratchboard more realistic, also learning the relationship among the horizon, vanishing points, horizontal and vertical lines.

In conclusion I did face some challenges with how to proportion peoples faces, and most defiantly with blind contour. But, in the end its worth it and you end up getting better at what you might have struggled with before. I enjoyed being in art all together, this was the main hour I looked forward to during the day. I think that I improved most on well, I cant pick just one, I improved with everything I did, everything I did was a chance to get better.
