This week’s art experience was something that I really needed. I am not much of a drawer, as you can see from the pictures, but it was very relaxing. With finals coming up, things have been very crazy and stressful. Taking some time to be in the Japanese Gardens and enjoying the scenery was just perfect. It was nice to not have to worry about all the homework I have or all the tests that are coming up. I have never had the opportunity to really sit and enjoy the gardens. Even though I am not an artist, I can now see why people love drawing and painting so much. I was able to actually pay attention to the details of something as simple as a leaf. I’m glad we did this experience, it was much needed.
