Influx of recent creative talent leaves me in awe, wanting more
Michael Ahearne ’14
The month of November has been a very hectic with Thanksgiving and weird schedules, yet at very same time, it has been filled with a lot of art and talent, especially at events such as the Fine Arts Extravaganza.
I have noticed a lot of talented artists come out of the Fine Arts Extravaganza and after talking to many different bands and many artists, it surprises me how much talent students have, yet we don’t see enough of it in and outside of school.
Some bands are just one-time acts, only getting together for the FAE. I find this very unfortunate because they seem really talented, and I wish some of them would perform more outside of school.
At the same time, though, I can see it being tough keeping a band together and having rehearsal when you have school work and tests to study for.
The one thing that I so desperately want to see more and more of is art.
After going to the FAE, I have seen so much from gifted students and their beautiful pieces of work they, but I don’t just want to see this beauty once or twice a year.
The more I see, the more I want.
BLAM does a great job of encouraging and showcasing art, but only releases a book of art each year.
Everyone should bookmark the BLAM website, blam.brophyprep.org, for more updates throughout the year.
There is art in classrooms, displayed in various hallways and streaming on a wide screen TV in Eller, but I think the talent deserves more public showcases.
I wish students could have a larger outlet to show off their art to the greater community.
They are so gifted, so I wonder why they don’t show off their art to those outside of Brophy.
I think they should submit their art to outside of school activities and events, to help themselves get exposure outside of school.
I am really excited to see what art students create and look forward to the future of Brophy art.
