  • Artist of the Day: Melissa Martinez

    In Blue Girl, Melissa Martinez uses blue colored pencil as she continues to explore the application of abstraction to figues. Melissa has turned her focus to the rich history of abstraction of the figure which plays beautifully with her concentration on mural art. One can’t help but think of the masters such as Picasso’s blue period, specifically The Old Guitarist and Diego Rivera’s ‘Dos Mujeres’. Melissa’s artwork matches cubist portraiture in its ability to convey multiple emotions simultaneously.

  • Black History Speaks in Rhyme and Reality

    Jaheim Hill's spoken word piece, "Black History" was just one of the highlights of the 2nd annual show that heard student voice and student performance. There were personal narratives as well as fables and more. Groups from around campus like the Indo Pak Club to the band, choir showed. English, Spanish and sign language; song and spoken word added to the inclusion and joy seen on stage and on screen. Don't wait another full year to celebrate the art of Black history

  • Black History Show has S.O.U.L

    Ana Paula Medrano was just one of over fifty voices heard on Wednesday night at our Black History Month celebration. Ana Paula spoke of the fascinating and little told stories of Black leadership in American history, telling that Barack Obama was not the first Black chief executive in North America. Tying together the personal and historical, we heard voices from around our school and community to create a night of inclusion and power. Kudos to the AASU for putting together an amazing night of community.

  • Black History Art Gallery

    Click above to see a gallery of over twenty original pieces of student art in this gallery. Inspired by the art and culture of African American predecessors, this is a show put together by Ms. Tremor's outstanding students touched by the works that came before them. The show sponsored by the African American Student Union was briefly but disgustingly interrupted by a racist tag, but the spirit of inclusion and the joy of art, poetry and music showed the power of creation is always superior to that of its opposite which can only negate. Please see for yourself as you explore our virtual space. Above is one of the pieces, Stevie Wonder by Giana Grisso

  • Artist of the Day: Briana Swihart

    Brianna executed her idea successfully. Also, I love her progression of ideas. It is almost like she is mixing in some of the techniques she learned in our previous projects this year: the silhouette, practice in drawing hands, and finally watercolor techniques. She played with scale which gives it the dream-like feel. Have you ever noticed how your dreams are almost like reality, but slightly off?

  • Health Academy gets Educated

    A big day of virtual knowledge for our Health Academy kids and crew is happening throughout the school day. A panel discussion and breakout rooms will give our students the opportunity to ask questions and take that with them back to school and career. We can't wait to hear what they have heard and honor the Health Academy for making this happen
