Art Student Spotlight-- Francesca
Miss Francesca is 12 years old and wise way beyond her years. I like to tease her that she's 12 going on sixty. She's the only girl I know that has mastered so many different skills at such a young age. Oh yeah.......and she speaks more than one language!
Here's a little interview I did with her after class today.
Me- What are some of your favorite hobbies?
Francesca- Soccer, painting, hula, playing rock band (with friends), surfing, guitar, crochet, making jewelry, and helping out at the Pannikin. (This is just this years list. When I met her she was also playing the saxophone and ice skating.)
Me- What do you want to be when you grow up?
Francesca- A forensic doctor
Me- huh? gross!...........I guess somebody has to do it.
Me- Tell me which class project has been your favorite?
Francesca- My favorite project so far was the "Bamboo" mural and the one we're doing right now. (Yellow Submarine)
Me- Do you have a boyfriend? (I ask her this all the time and always get the same response plus an eye roll)
Francesca- No!!! .....sadly
Me- Oh........so does that mean you want one now? (total silence fills the room)
Me-Who's your most inspiring teacher? (trick question)
Francesca- You of course.........and my 6th grade teacher Mrs. Campbell.
Favorite music--Lady Gaga, The Police, The Beatles, Tool, and Radio Head
Favorite Books--Ugglies, The Twilight series and Psycho
