I made it!

About a month ago I had IB exams. Everything went smoothly (if you consider staying alive smooth). I can’t wait for July 6th so I can see my final grade. Now that I’ve finished the rest of my classes, I┬ánoticed some new followers on this blog. For this reason I’ve decided to make a closing statement.

Thank you to Ms. Fernie, my classmates, and everyone else who helped me along this journey. IB art helped me hone my skills, express myself creatively, and discover new mediums I can practice in the future. Today I still do┬áhenna and digital art. I’m not sure that would be the case if I hadn’t gone into this program.

It was hard work; that’s for sure. But I don’t think I’d be the same person I am today without that extra push from IB. For anyone who is considering entering this program, I encourage you to give it a shot and try to make something beautiful out of it.

You’ll learn so much. And although you may forget the nitty gritty of cellular respiration, all of those books you read in English, or how to conjugate that verb in French, you’ll never forget what you learned about yourself.

Thank you to all my followers (classmates and otherwise), and goodbye!

Hey there

I just posted my last post to the wrong blog. Holy moly. Anyway, this is what I said before I completely confused my followers on my old blog that hasn’t been updated in over a year.

This blog is going to be about me navigating through the fantastical maze that is IB Art. Regular track art was a breeze, but this class is a doozy. You’ll spend hours of your time on these painstakingly made pieces of art. Yes, real art! Art that means something, art that you have to think about. All of a sudden you’re in the art room every free hour you can and you STILL are afraid you won’t finish. Don’t worry. I think.

We’ll see. I’m crossing my fingers.
