Senior Shreya Jindal is a co-president of the art club. She uses art as a way to relax and decompress. She made this piece, which she calls 'pot head', out of a tree branch from her backyard. This is one of many pieces for her portfolio.
“It’s mainly about the interaction between humans and nature and plants. So all the plants in this piece are in pots, so it kind of shows how we try to enclose nature and it is [seen as something] really more for decoration.”
“It’s really fun because it’s kind of wacky and weird and it doesn’t really make sense and you kind of have to think about it. Honestly I’m not sure I know what it means.”
Senior Dristi Thakur is the activities director of the art club. She uses art as a form of therapy and comfort. In this piece, as well as the others in her portfolio, Thakur said that it resembles fear and how it affects her as a person.
"I've always been kind of interested in the things that scare me. I kind of question why they scare me and how that affects me as a person."
“I usually just show people my work instead of explain it to people. Because you can interpret this in many ways. I’ve always kind of been interested in the things that scare me. I kind of question why they scare me and how that affects me as a person. So my portfolio is about fear. Art to me is more of an eye-opener; you see things in a different perspective, which helps you grow as a person.”
Senior Katie Capio is the treasurer for the art club. She uses art as a form of expression. She loves digital and comic illustrations like this piece on the left.
“[Myfavorite part about art is] just being free to create whatever you want.”
“I think digital [art] is fun because you could always just control z everything if you don’t like it.”
