In today's class session you will begin a piece that answers the question: "What makes me a high achiever?" Your artwork will have two seperate statements, each stating an action that makes you a high achiever, each with an illustration of what was written. "I am very smart." or "I make straight A's" are not appropriate for the statements. What do you do that enables you to get straight A's? Think about it more that way.
