Artistic Expressions: Camila Villarreal

provided by Angel Machiri
Guest contributor Angel Machiri sits down with freshman Camila Villarreal to discuss her artistic journey. Pictured above is one of Villarreal’s paintings.

Name: Camila Villarreal

Grade: freshman

Experience: 6 years

Wingspan: What inspired you to get involved with art?

Villarreal:  “My cousin did art and I really like the painting that she drew. I also found it really interesting.”

Wingspan: What does art mean to you?

Villarreal: “Art means a lot of things. It expresses a lot of emotion like being, happy, sad, and frustrated. It’s a good way to let off some steam.”

Wingspan: What’s your favorite art piece?

Villarreal: “One of my favorite art pieces is probably a picture of a girl in a meadow that she drew a while back. It was very meaningful to me.”

WIngspan: What’s your favorite aspect of art?

Villarreal: “My favorite aspect of art is it doesn’t have to be a painting, it can be a picture, or you can use clay, it can be whatever. It’s not just pen and pencil, it can be anything in your imagination.”

Wingspan: Where do you get your inspiration from?

Villarreal: “I get a lot of my inspiration from nature or animals. I like flower paintings a lot and also Victorian air artists. I think it’s beautiful how they paint.”

Wingspan: What are some challenges you’ve faced in art, and how did you overcome them? 

Villarreal: “Probably art blocked a lot of times. I couldn’t figure out what to draw. How I came over is stepping and looking around me and seeing what is beautiful to me, also realizing that everything is art.”

Wingspan: Would you pursue a future in art?

Villarreal: “I would probably not just because I have some other passions I really wanna do, but art will always be one of my favorite hobbies to do.”

Wingspan: What empowerment have you seen since you were eight to right now?

Villareal: “From being eight and just drawing stick figures to now I feel like I’m able to capture more emotion in what I draw, and just by drawing a black line on a paper you can interpret it to be so many different things.”
