Whether it is running colored liquid across a canvas or laying verses in the spur of the moment, almost everyone has an activity they enjoy doing, some of which are art related.

Some enjoy singing, others enjoy art. Senior Wiliam Spielmaker appreciates what being a part of band has taught him.

“Band has taught me how to work with people that I don’t necessarily like to be around, as well as responsibility and productivity,” Spielmaker said. “My band class also helped further my knowledge in my instrument.”

Art can be used to express oneself or to bond with a family member or friend.

Senior Alyssa Caudle first used art to bond with her father.

“He was a major artist his whole life and even went on to do it professionally,” Caudle said.

Sometimes in school, art is overlooked or overshadowed by sports. Art classes can allow students to have an hour to think freely, compared to a math or science course.

Art comes in all kinds of forms. Draw & Paint, choir, and band are all classes that can be considered an art credit.

Caudle participates in all different kinds of arts and uses them to express herself.

“I’ve helped to decorate and design objects for sporting events,” Caudle said. “I do oil paintings, oil and chalk pastel drawings, as well as simple charcoal and lead drawings.”

Some people choose to pursue art as a career after high school.

My choir class, Acapella, has helped me develop my vocal skills.”

— Tanner Tuttle, senior

Senior Tanner Tuttle plans to attend college in a degree in worship arts.

“My choir class,  Acapella, has helped me develop my vocal skills, as well as practicing guitar at home, (which) has helped me better the playing skills that I will need,” Tuttle said.

Spielmaker recommended participating in some kind of art-like activity.

“There is some form of art for everyone,” Spielmaker said. “There are so many options. Art can be such a stress reliever, and it can be fun.”
