Art amidst crisis…

Over the centuries, history has been preserved through multiple forms and mediums, with one very prominent form being art.

The moments before a show

Time – It’s a fascinating yet somewhat contradictory concept. It seems to be never ending, slow, and at times goes at a speed mirroring a snail. But in the long run, it moves at a speed comparable to that of light. Weeks, months, years, all gone by in the blink of an eye. You never […]

Science Fair – 2020

Often times in school, class can be boring, and a basic wipe board lesson with notes isn’t enough to get the information across to us as students. For this reason, a hands on, interactive lesson can sometimes be a better option. This is the best way to describe the Science Fair we had last week. […]

However, many times, the consequences of buying it, such as an excess amount of preservatives, can outweigh it’s easy accessibility. Thus, making certain food items from scratch sometimes becomes a healthier, more cost-efficient way to get the […]

Deception

As I wake up, the birds greet me with their joyous chirping. “That’s odd, they are not this active in the winter.” I think to myself, as a ray of sunshine hits my face. The sun normally doesn’t shine so bright either, I think suspiciously.The sun was indeed shining bright as can be, and outside, […]

Self-portrait

Self portraits can often be an artist’s most iconic work. They tend to bring out one’s inner thoughts and ideas, and can provide the viewer an insight into the author’s life.

A Sophomore now….

It’s the day every student dreams of. It’s the day every teacher dreads. It’s also the day that signifies the start of a new beginning. This Monday was my last day of school. However, in high school, the last day is not one to relax and enjoy, but one to finish reviewing the year’s work. […]
