'Art should be exalted'

Art. We all know of it. We all experience it. Every day and everywhere we turn, it is there. Whether it is a design on a soda pop can or a poster broadcasting a meeting or a club, we never stop experiencing it.

But how do these people, these artists, get to be this good? Some are born with the natural talent and some cultivate it by taking classes. And some use a mixture of both.

Whether people believe it or not, art is an important part of today's society and our art classes should be exalted.

Students at John Glenn have the chance to take art for four years and do independent study if they so choose. As the years progress, the talent improves and the projects given are more challenging.

"You get to make something different," said junior Julie Morgan, an Art III student, while working on her insulation project.

Overall, the instructor, Amy Kennedy, does a fantastic job of taking the students' raw talents and transforming them into beautiful gifts.

"[Kennedy] has great faith in all of us and she wants us to succeed," said two of Kennedy's art IV class students Sam Norris and Connor Reinbeau. The whole class nodded with assent.

On the whole, we can see today's art students will become tomorrow's great artists.
