Student Spotlight! (September 2021)

Each month I will be spotlighting one of my students – past or present, and their artistic ventures! I work with students of all ages and abilities and you’ll get to learn a little bit about these amazing artists and their work!

Our September spotlight is on:

Caroline Nielson

My name is Caroline Nielson. I am 5 years old and am in Kindergarten. I have been taking art lessons with Miss Jenell for 4 months. I began taking art lessons because I really like making art. Miss Jenell inspires me to do art because she is really good at it. I like using acrylic paint for my artwork and drawing pretty things like hearts and flowers. I also enjoy reading and playing with my little brother.

Title: The Pretty Petal
Medium: Paint
I used pink to paint the petals because it’s my favorite color. 

What’s your favorite thing about art? “My favorite thing about art is drawing and coloring.”

Besides visual arts are you into any other art forms? “I take ballet lessons because I like dancing. I feel happy when I dance.”

Title: Moonlight Road, Medium: Paint

This is a painting of a road leading to a magical land in the mountains. I like the colors I used in this painting. 

What is your favorite thing you’ve ever created and why? “My favorite thing I’ve ever created is my painting, “Moonlight Road.” It is my favorite because I like to paint.”

Do you have a favorite color? “My favorite color is pink because it’s bright and pretty.”

Title: Flower the Cat
Medium: Pencil, Crayon
This picture makes me feel happy because I like drawing pink hearts. 

How has your artwork improved/what have you done to keep improving as an artist? “I’ve been taking art lessons with Miss Jenell every week. We color, draw, and paint a lot and that helps me get better.”

Caroline comes full of smiles and ready to create some art every week! She is eager to learn new art mediums and techniques and puts in a lot of concentration and focus to become better! She always has fun and is imaginative in her work as well! Keep up all the good work Caroline!
