I remember back in Kindergarten, we made ABC books about ourselves. Granted, it was very simple since a 5 year old has only done so much in their conscious life, so mine probably just said B is for Barbie and C is for Chocolate. I figured it would be an interesting series and concept to revisit the ABCs, and share more about myself than I normally do in my writing. Think of this as the ABC secrets of Michelle.
A is for Art.
My Grandma was an artist, specifically a painter. She spent the later years of her life watching Bob Ross and teaching herself how to paint, and then teaching others how to paint. She taught people till the day she died.
I grew up with art around me in different forms, and took hold of it for self expression. I started dancing at a very young age, would take my mom’s camera and take pictures of things in our back yard, joined theatre and band in high school, and kept these passions as I got older. Art has been a very, very significant part of my life and makes me who I am.
What would your A be? Let me know in the comments.
