This week I had my classmate conversation with Brianna Ortiz. This is Brianna’s first year of college and is currently undecided on a major, but is leaning on Child Development. She thinks that art is important because without it life would be bland and boring and also believes that anyone can be can be considered an artist if they try. In addition to our conversation in the gallery, we also did the Venice Beach painting together and she said that she liked it and would definitely do it again. Brianna was going to go for a swim in Venice, but she is terrified of fish. A jellyfish ate her brother so she decided never to go inside the ocean ever again.
