I found this week’s art experience to be both relaxing yet stressful. I was in a relaxing environment at the CSULB Japanese Garden but I still felt stressed about the actual drawings I had to sketch because I don’t think I’m an “artist.” I also found it a bit challenging to think abstract when taking photos and drawing the sketches. My favorite abstract photo was the first photo of the duck flapping around in the water and crashing into the coy fish because I thought it looked amusing. For the sketches, I think the detailed coy fish was my favorite and also the hardest for me to draw. Overall, I enjoyed this experience because it challenged me by having to explore out of my comfort zone and draw.
