2014 Sterling Scholars - Brayden Giles Larsen—Visual Arts Sterling Scholar

Article Date: 
18 April, 2014 (All day)

Braden is the son of Todd and Allison Larson.
 I love art. Art is what I do and what defines me. It is the way I express myself. I do all different kinds of art whether it is music, throwing a pot, painting or drawing. I have always been interested in arts of all kind. 
I just like to create. My medium of choice is a graphite pencil and blank sheet of paper. 
I am colorblind, which makes working with colors more of a challenge for me. Although I have this disadvantage, I have used colored mediums such as acrylic paint, watercolors, colored pencils and pastels to illustrate myself onto the canvas.
Being a Sterling Scholar has been a very rewarding experience for me.  It has helped me become more involved in the school and community. Since becoming a Sterling Scholar I have participated in and helped organize not only art-oriented activities, but a medley of different service and leadership activities such as Festival of Trees, Operation Smile and a Mountain Star Blood Drive.
I have also been able to use my art in more ways than I have been able to before. I designed a t-shirt for a benefit concert, helped with FBLA projects and I will be displaying and sharing my art at the elementary school art show. 
Besides art, I have many interests that take up my time. Whether it’s hanging out with friends, longboarding, snowboarding, baseball or working, I always have something to do. 
Following high school I plan on serving an LDS mission for two years, and when I come back I plan to attend college and hope to further my artistic abilities to the point where I can get a career in art.
