Student Artists of the Month

    • I love acting because it allows me to explore and empathize with people’s stories. Theatre empowers me to be a compassionate, intuitive person while also challenging me to listen more, feel more, and think less. I’ve met the most talented, genuine people through the school’s theatre program and am so grateful to be a part of this incredible community.

    • Art is important to me because it is my escape from reality where I am able to take my feelings and ideas and put them down on paper for others to see. Through art I am able to express my creativity to others and show them my imagination through many mediums, each expressing my ideas in a different way.
