Tuesday Talent – Artist

Developing Artist

Written by Art Therapy teacher Jennifer Anderson

Gianna is developing into a wonderful artist. She has been learning to take more time with her artwork and really focuses on whatever piece she is working on at the moment. Her choices in colors and design never cease to amaze me.

While I love watching her concentration, (sometimes sticking her tongue out when she is really trying to focus) she also has a great gift in knowing when she’s finished. She never overthinks what she’s doing, which I think is important — when she’s done, she’s done! Her talent and spirit are reflected in her magnificent artwork.
