What is art?

By Shanea Higgin

Art to me is the freedom to express.

Art is the beauty in my face to the sweat from my feet.

Art is the reliance and endless hours I spent working to reach my goals.

Art is the Joy that is given to me from my ancestors and God above.

Art brings hope, determination, and curiosity.

Art helps me be weird and love how much I stand out.

Art is fearless but vague.

Art is raw.

Art is human, from my coarse hair to my unpainted nails.

Art is Me.
