Art makes me feel: 

"Calm & Happy because it gives me time to express my feelings and no one can tell me what to make. Art lets me spread my wings and soar. Everything involves art, and I mean anything. I love art. Art inspires me to be !!MYSELF!!"

Elementary school student 

Art makes me feel: "calm so I can focus and concentrate on what i'm doing. It also makes me feel relaxed so I don't have to really think about my art. Last, it also makes me feel creative because I can make what I want and how I want."
