Marlington's Art Department brings students together while getting them involved with art shows, art clubs, a wide range of classes, and many different assignments used to inspire and spark creativity throughout the year. Marlington has so many opportunities to allow for creative freedoms to be expressed such as Art 1-4, drawing, sculpture, photography, painting, art clubs, and large school-wide art department projects such as making things for the school musical sets, and the end of year art show.
The Various classes all have one thing in common; they allow for students to express themselves. I decided to ask some students who have been a part of the department for all of their highschool careers about what they feel about art and what it means to them, how people can be involved, and what is planned to happen in the department. After finding Morgan Mcgill and Lizzie Shahan, I asked the following questions.
I asked, “ What does art mean to you summarized in a couple words?” and Morgan replied, “ Freedom of expression; something that shakes my core. It’s what’s most important to me as a person”
I later asked, “ What art do you do most often and why” in which they replied, “ a little bit of everything makes art so much fun and so interesting.”
If you are interested in anything involving the art department, feel free to ask Mrs. Knisley or Mrs. Mcguire for more information. Be sure to keep an eye out for the art show and the various projects around the school.
