Title of Art Piece: Sam
Student/Artist’s Name: Lauren Appenzeller
School: Lathrop High School
Artist Statement: This started as a sketch of a friend as she sketched me. I wanted to improve on realistic people and objects. I did this during the summer– part of the year where I have a lot of free time. My personality is introverted, so having a sketch of one of few friends inspired me to work into it again and remind myself that I am not alone. I continued to add detail with charcoal until it satisfied me.
