Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

Art and Music are my passions and I love making them. I want to spread a message to people and these are my best outlets to do so.

Favorite Memory

Ms. Reinbach’s classes are my favorite memories. She is what made me improve my art, she gave me the advice and constructive criticism I needed to hear and overall made me into a better artist while also letting me choose which path to go down.


What would you say to someone who wants to get involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

Do it. Just go ahead and do it. You will never know, never improve, and never move on from where you are currently until you take the step and get involved. Doing the fine arts program here at RB, even if you have your doubts, will be a good experience for young artists and performers and musicians. Trust me.


Future Plans

I want to major in character design and animation and Street Art at the Art Acadamy of Cincinnati.


Accomplishments

I was accepted into the Bachelors of Fine Arts Program for the Art Academy of Cincinnati during the summer of 2021. There I learned more about the different types of art I could make and discovered new mediums to use and found my passions.

Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I am involved with the Fine Arts at Bacon because it allows me to do what I love and express my inner creativity. Not only do I learn something new about what I love to do everyday, I also learn things about myself I never knew. The teachers and people involved in the Fine Arts here at Bacon only make it easier for me to love it.

Favorite Memory

My favorite memory of the Fine Arts at Bacon was the radio play, Suspense, I was in last year. Countless memories within that show, but it was also my favorite because I really got to advance my acting skills and work with cool sound effects (I also didn’t have to memorize my lines).


What would you say to someone who wants to get involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

What I would say to someone who wants to get involved in the Performing Arts at Bacon is to just go for it! My first year in the Drama Guild, I was a shy and scared little freshman who knew nobody but the people there will always make you feel like family. No one’s judgement or the fear of being judged should stop you because you are to live life for you, and if you want to do Performing Arts because it makes you happy then do it.


Future Plans

My future plans are to get into the acting world, audition for films or shows and hopefully grow from there. I would love to go to Columbia Chicago College to act there and hopefully achieve my dreams!
