Here at Viera High School, many of the students are interested in taking art and learning different techniques. Viera offers three different types of art classes, which are 2D art, 3D art, and ceramics. Each class allows students to try different styles and teaches them different things. All the classes also let kids express themselves through their projects.
Doctor West’s seventh period class currently works on making zentangles. Zentangles are basically just drawings. Katie Smith describes them as “doodles that include a personal symbol, interlacing, and 3D objects.” Many things can inspire students to make their projects unique including faith, family, or even just something pretty they see.
Mr. Cook’s ceramics class has also been hard at work. Ninth grader, Robin Waytas, created the clay fish that is pictured. She made it by first making two pinch pots out of clay, then putting them together to form the body. After that, she added the details and color to complete her project. Her inspiration for this particular project was came from her list of favorite animals. She loves fish and thinks they are adorable. Robin and other students enjoy their art classes and would like to continue art in the future.
