I am Luo Jian An, born in 1993 in Guangzhou China. I am majoring Art in my college, and I am here to write this letter for pursuing advanced art studies in the University of California. I believe those studies are indispensable for my future career development and will benefit me for my art studies.
I chose art as my intended major because I love art and beauty. Art is everywhere in my life. I studied art in my country. Art already became my favorite course and enjoyed spending time in the art studio and drawing was always the big habit for me because I enjoy building beautiful stuffs, and I learned those things from my personal experience while I had studied art in my hometown. “Art is a good way of thinking and learning art can mold character. Also every culture has art. Like language, art is a basic human behavior.” In other world, art is an important part of our life. I love art because it makes me enjoy my life and complete human being. I have always been interested in art. For example, art is evident in that I fell in love with art when I participated in the art exhibition with social activities. When I was young, that was my first time to visit the art exhibition, and I fell in love with art.
