When learning that I was going to be taking an art class this semester, I instantly became nervous. I always liked art, but I am not very good at it. It was nerve-racking because I have not been in an art class since 6th grade. This is because we had the choice between art and band, and I loved being in the band. My 6th grade art teacher was not very supportive and if the art was not up to her standards she would give you a bad grade, or make you redo it.
