ANCHORAGE (KTUU) To say Charlotte Severin can paint is an understatement. She's as talented as they come. We caught up with the teen during her art class at Polaris K-12 creating one of her masterpieces.
In the short time we got to know her, we found out she loves using the colors blue and orange and painting people.
"If I don't have an idea at the beginning of a painting, I'll just go for it and an idea will emerge. I tend to just like trust myself to come up with something before I'm done with it," she said.
Severin said she's always had a big imagination, she just never knew what to do with it.
"When I finally figured out how to draw and paint, I was like, there's what you're supposed to do with this, that's awesome."
Painting became an outlet and a way for her to express herself. She said she loves the feeling of being able to create something out of nothing.
Her talent caught the eye of her art teacher. He submitted her latest painting to the Anchorage Museum's student art exhibit. Her works of art will not only be on display, but her submission made the front cover.
"It's very different than the rest of my pieces since I don't really go into water color that much, but I wanted to challenge myself," she said.
The 47th Annual Student Art Show is a district wide presentation of student artwork celebrating National Youth Art Month. The exhibit will be open through April 5, 2019 at several locations around town.
You can view them at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center, Eagle River-Chugiak Municipal Library, ZJ Loussac Library, Anchorage City Hall and Midtown Mall.
