The art of self-expression

The art of self-expression

by Audrey Hopewell

For a lucky few, artistic talent and self expression come easily. For others, not so much. Luckily, West High has a bevy of talent, artistic and otherwise. These videos showcase the best of West’s artists. The students featured here express themselves through illustration, fashion or makeup.

Erica Fisher ’14, Paige Brazina ’16 and Hannah Lidral ’14 see their artistic expression as an important part of their personalities. They explain further in this video by Julia Truszkowsi ’14.

Hannah Song ’16 is also an illustrator. Unlike Fisher, however, she gets her inspiration from animals and her drawings are realistic rather than abstract. See her illustrations and what inspires her to express herself in this video by Kelsey Keranen ‘ 16.
