    Student Artwork

    Maria Hahne, 12th Grade, Ballard High School, "Puddle"

    Student paintingWhile listening to the music of Charles Mingus I found that it reminded me of a film noir kind of movie. To go along with that vibe I painted a city landscape and it all kind of came together. I wanted to portray a dark gloomy city because that’s what I saw in the music. I found it to be challenging because I don’t usually paint, however I enjoyed the challenge and want to work on improving my skills in the medium going forward.

    Kai Bowen, 11th grade, The Center School, "A City Brought to You by Charles Mingus"

    Student paintingMy piece is inspired by the oft-overlooked wisdom of women. I wanted to communicate a feeling of being safe and looked after, of having someone who you can turn to for anything - be it advice or a hug - with a dash of something ethereal.

    Eleanor John, 12th grade, The Center School, "Wisdom"

    Student ArtworkWhen I was making it I accidentally drew a line around one of the figures, so I used that to create a design throughout the piece.  I think in the end the background really ties the whole thing together.    For me, it evokes a fun and light feeling, and I hope it does the same for viewers.

    Student Artwork

    Isabella Caldejon, 11th Grade, Cleveland High School, "Around My Mind"

    Student ArtworkWho are you? This question haunts me. I don’t fully know the answer yet. I struggle with mental health and I wanted to express how that feels- mind being clouded by darkness. Mental health is an important topic in my artwork. Acrylic paint on canvas is my favorite medium.

    Tiana Shelby, 12th Grade, Franklin High School, "Submerged in Darkness"

    Student Artwork

    Nora Cate, 12th Grade, Franklin High School, "Eye Over All"

    Student ArtworkI created this piece to capture the emotions felt during the beginning of my relationship, while connecting with others who have felt similar emotions, past or present. I want to spread comfort through knowing that others have felt caution, growing, trust, love, and more.

    Ella Maurer, 12th Grade, Franklin High School, "The Beginning"

    Student ArtworkThis piece represents the painful influences of hatred. When harsh words are spoken, they can push someone into a void of negativity. That person can slowly fall into a spiral of depression. Having experienced this before, I wanted to bring this issue to light.

    Mai Linh Wong, 10th Grade, Franklin High School, "Void"

    Student Artwork

    Zivia Rich, 12th Grade, The Center School, "Cover My Music"

    Student paintingThis piece was based on the song Children of God by AJJ. The song has very intense imagery that’s been prominent in my head since I first heard it a few years ago, so this piece felt gratifying to make.

    Virgil Grooms, 12th grade, The Center School, "Newly Undeceased"

    Student ArtworkI enjoyed working with the board and seeing how the paint moves on a different material. I wanted to do something with a lot of color and vibrancy. I am not much of a painter and don’t have a lot of experience with it, so I was having fun exploring it, not really worrying about how well my technique turned out.

    Madison Chamberlain, 12th Grade, The Center School, "And I was Boo Boo the Fool"

    Student ArtworkMy self-portrait is inspired by the fauvist artist Henry Matisse, for his different approach to painting portraits. I appreciate the idea of fauvism, forgetting the perfection of a person's face and just going at it with color that wouldn't normally be associated with skin tone. I wanted to try a new technique, so I used the media of acrylic painting to help develop my piece.
