Involvement in the arts adds beauty to high school experience

Senior Isabel White shows off her “Corpse Bride” drawing. White has loved art since she was little.

   Throughout their school years, students had the opportunity to explore their creativity and improve artistic skills. For some of them, their experiences were inspiration and for others perhaps a career.

   “Music has always been a part of my life. I don’t plan to stop playing my guitar or singing anytime soon, and maybe one day it’ll turn into a career,” senior Grace Drake said.

   Drake was in choir through most of her school experience.

   “I’ve been in choir for 9 years, which is what makes me keep going and my love for music’’ Drake said.

   Senior artist Abbigail Flinn wants to open up her own studio. 

   “I have loved art since middle school, and I was involved in art club in elementary. And ever since it has been my favorite,” said Flinn.

   Multiple seniors take part in the art of music or the art of creativity. Over the years, they have found their favorite song or piece to draw. 

   “My favorite thing to draw is either ‘A Corpse Bride’ or Willy Wonka from ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.’”  Senior Isabel White said.

   “I have been passionate about art since I could remember. I have always loved art.” White said. 

   Senior Autumn Walton has been in choir for nine years altogether.

  “American Heroes for sure is my favorite song we have done! We all always get so excited when Veteran’s Day comes around. It’s a privilege to be singing this song during the Veteran’s Day assembly, and it hits a little bit closer to home because a lot of people in my family fought for our country,” Walton said. 

   A handful of students also got the opportunity to go to districts/state and be entered in competitions.

   “Going to nationals this summer for art will be an awesome experience, and, in the years past, I got an honorable mention my sophomore year for my mini sculpture. Then this past year I received painter of the year and outstanding photo,” Flinn said.

  Nationals will be held August 15-19th in Columbus, Ohio. 

 Angela Konopasek got bronze in state in Columbia with her solo “Se Tu Ma Mi” and “Come Let’s Get Merry,” and has been in choir for 9 years.
