Creative Students at Glenn
Have you ever wondered what hidden creative students are among us? Today is a day to appreciate the wonderful students of John Glenn and to show off their creative talent. Whether they produce art or music, let’s show off their creativity with the last article of the year. I would like to highlight four different individual talents today.
The first John Glenn Eagle we have is senior Carlos Lopez. Carlos first got into producing beats towards the end of 2020 during the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. His creation of music started from his passion for the beats in songs from artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West (now known as “Ye”). Carlos explained that once he gets his beats copyrighted, he will publish his beats for all those to hear. During his free time, you can find him researching new sounds for future beats, enjoying a good show on Netflix, and listening to multiple genres of music, among other things. You can find Carlos on Instagram as “easymoneyuziii.”
Second on the list is Andrea Alfaro. Her artistic interest started back when she could hold a pencil. Andrea constantly creates new art in her free time whether she is asked to or does it as a gift for someone. When it comes to getting artist block, she prefers to run while listening to music and once she’s seen something interesting it immediately gives her brand new inspiration. Her personal style comes from aspects of cartoon and other artists’ work, using little elements from different pieces she’s seen it allows her to create her own unique style.
Third on our list is a student from our very own sister school Southeast Academy. Alicia Cram is a 16 year old junior with a passion for art. Most of her art is inspired by anything that she likes or that piqued her interest. She started making art to relax and get away from everything. For her, the hardest part about being an artist is when others judge her art when they do not do art themselves. If you are interested in seeing any of her work you can find her at “local_artist_cram” on Instagram.
Kiyanna Teartt is 4th on today’s list. Her love for art started in 2018, but she took art more seriously because she saw the creations of others around her. The inspiration to continue drawing was after seeing her friend Andrea’s work. Kiyanna personally thinks that the hardest parts for her when drawing are body proportions, realism, and staying consistent with her work. She consistently posts about her and her art work on Instagram under the name “balanced_.ki.”
Be on the lookout for any of your classmates or others around you. Everyone has their own secret talent and we can all take inspiration from one another to make our pieces better than ever.
