Student artist's passion gives him college credit, satisfaction

Daniel Broeseker | Countryside High senior

I can't remember a time when I didn't have a pen and paper doodling in class. It was in middle school when I had the opportunity to take art classes when I really knew I loved painting and sculpting. But most of all I loved drawing. Drawing is my favorite because I can do it any place and any time. I always thought it was a great way to take ordinary subjects and transform them into something unique. My most recent collection focused on dreams, and it was one of my most fulfilling projects. Not only because it was a big part of my final grade, but I presented it to the College Board for the chance at college credit and I got it. I hope to keep drawing in college, and explore other areas of art as well. I know it's difficult to make drawing a career, but I would love it. I know it is my passion every time I get told to put my doodles away when I should be taking notes.
