artist of the Week

Jordyn Petrey, Senior


Visual Arts, Intro, Drawing & Painting, Photography, Graphic Design,
Senior Studio Portfolio

Medium, photography


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I’ve always been surrounded by art with my family always doing something. That lead to my sisters and I also doing something artistic whether it was drama, pottery, drawing or photography. So for me it kinda came naturally and joining the Fine Arts at RB helped me grow and pushed me to do my best.

Favorite Memory

My favorite photograph I've taken is called "flower girl" and it was the first assignment from this year. That was the project that helped me decide that I wanted to photograph animals for a living.


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

Don’t give up just because the class gets hard - keep going because then you will find your passion for it.


Future Plans

I plan to start my own business in animal photography.


Other Involvement & Interests

Ava DeStazio, Senior


Chamber Choir, soprano

Drama Guild, Newsies (goon, photographer, Newsie)


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I am involved because it’s a lot of fun, and I was able to meet new people. The Drama Guild is like a big family, and I loved practicing and performing with everyone.


Favorite Memory

My favorite memory is the Christmas Concert. It was the first time I performed at Roger Bacon. I also loved getting to know Mr. Burke more during Newsies and seeing how funny he is. I could see how much he cares about the students which just makes RB that special of a place.

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

I would tell them it’s just a lot of fun to show people your talents.


Future Plans

I want to go to college to be a medical assistant.

Corinne Crowe, Senior


Visual Arts, Intro, Photography, Senior Studio Portfolio

Medium, photography, ceramic sculpture

Drama Guild, Godspell (set/prop/run crew), Singin' in the Rain (Cosmo)


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I love having various outlets for self expression aside from soccer and other things like Outreach and Senate. The Fine Arts have been and always will be very enjoyable to me— learning dances, building sets, making a complex sculpture, finding the perfect lighting for a photo, they are all challenging yet enticing activities.

Favorite Memory

I loved my portfolio class with Mrs. Reinbach this year— she allowed me the space and resources to teach myself ceramics and sculpture work with a lot of creative freedom. It was a nice time for me to escape the rest of my daily life and just relax as I learned how to navigate a new medium that I quickly learned to enjoy. Plus once I continued my photography work, I also could explore my skills there as well.


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

GO FOR IT. Giving yourself the opportunity to grow in a creative outlet can be more beneficial than you might expect. You’ll gain so many skills through your involvement in the fine arts both in the art world and in your daily life.


Future Plans

I’ll be attending UC and majoring in Psychology.


Other Involvement & Interests

Visual Arts, Intro, Drawing & Painting, Studio Portfolio

Medium, graphite, acrylic, watercolor, digital design


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I love art and thanks to the help and encouragement from my teachers, I get to express myself in art classes.


Favorite Memory

My favorite visual piece has been the mark making artwork, but I've also been enjoying the oil pastel self portrait I’m currently working on.

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

Don’t be afraid to fail, it’s a part of learning that will make you better and remember, you can always ask for help. But just express yourself.


Future Plans

My plans are to continue to make art and even possibly go to art school.


Other Involvement & Interests

Ryan Grider, Senior

SOUND CREW and Crew head

I have run the sound board for all of my shows, which means setting out equipment and speakers, assigning and passing out microphones, pulling sound effects and audio, and setting everything on the sound board.

The biggest task is then mixing and monitoring all of the actor's mics and sounds as we go through every single performance. I've also helped run sound for RB3, Mass, Talent Show, and more.


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

Well at first it was just something new to try and do while in high school, but then it gradually turned into something I enjoyed doing in my life.


Favorite Memory

Drama rehearsals. Especially near the beginning of each show as we get to play around and learn with each other.



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

I would say that if you want to join a community of people who value the Fine Arts - then Roger Bacon definitely is one of the best places to be.


Future Plans

I plan to attend The University of Cincinnati and major in

Computer Engineering

Drama Guild, Once On This Island (Tonton),

Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll, Knave of Hearts), Newsies (Jack Kelly)


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I see it as an escape from the realities of the world and it lets me express myself and truly makes me happy. I never saw myself as a singer, but Drama Guild and chorale have let me experience with my range more and I truly feel it has helped me improved. I love singing and music. Through shows, I think the concept of getting to take on a new persona and deliver a story is so empowering.

Favorite Memory

My favorite memory is being able to work on "NEWSIES"(my favorite musical) my senior year and the relationships I’ve built through it.


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

I would say go for it. I did not see myself as a fine arts student throughout my first two years in high school. However, I did my first musical my junior year and absolutely fell in love with the culture of musical theater and got involved with the two shows my last year in high school along with chorale. If you keep yourself from getting involved now, you might miss out on something that you never knew you liked. So just do it!


Future Plans

I plan on going to Miami University and majoring in marketing.

Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

The Fine Arts Program has and currently is improving my skills to be prepared for college and a career in the art world.

Favorite Memory

I enjoyed looking through the art in my Freshman and Sophomore art shows. And displaying my own art has been fun. But my favorite memory is from Mrs. Reinbach.


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

You should know that in art - some people will like your work and some people will dislike it, but that does not discredit how good it might be.

Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I am involved in the Fine Arts because it is a way that I can have a creative outlet during school and as an extracurricular. The drama community is the greatest and always pushes me to do my best while still having fun.

Favorite Memory

My favorite memory is the week of filming for Once On This Island.


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

You defiantly should get involved in the visual or preforming arts. There are so many different things that you can do during or after school with teachers that will help you learn and grow. The Fine Arts can help you branch out and try new things, especially with all of the options for electives.


Future Plans

After Roger Bacon I plan to major in nursing.

Visual Arts, Intro, Photography, Studio Portfolio

Medium, photography

Drama Guild, Singin' in the Rain (ensemble)


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I’m involved in the Fine Arts because the first time I came to Roger Bacon I wanted to get involved with some sort of art activity and I came across photography. I fell in love with photography the first day of the class.


Favorite Memory

My favorite memory is getting gold and silver keys in the Scholastics competition for my photography.

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

The people who are involved in the Arts at Bacon are very kind and comfortable in what they do. They are always welcoming and accepting of new students.


Future Plans

My plan is to go to the University of Cincinnati and study photojournalism.

Clare Wiley, Senior


Visual Arts, Intro, Photography, Drawing & Painting, Senior Studio Portfolio

Medium, photography


Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

I wanted to be involved with the Fine Arts at Bacon because I’ve always enjoyed art. It’s just always been something fun for me. And now having been inside it for about four years, I’m so glad I did become apart of it. Because I enjoy the environment within the classes and I enjoy being able to have a creative outlet that I otherwise can’t really tap into day-to-day at school. It’s a great refreshing moment for me at school, because I feel that I can be myself around the people in my class, and still do what I’m interested in and have fun.

Favorite Memory

My favorite memory would probably be winning my silver key last year and my gold key this year at Scholastics. They are definitely moments of mine that I am very proud of. And I credit part of those achievements to the teaching from Mrs. Reinbach, and being taught how to understand photography. One of my favorite photos I’ve taken would be one called “Unsolicited,” which won an honorable mention at Scholastics this year. Additionally, I always enjoy the class itself, because the environment is so accepting, and I feel that I can be myself in the class. I love being around artists, and being able to get peeks inside their minds and see their art, and see their unique styles and personalities. I also really love how these classes allow us to be ourselves without a mask that we may put on during school. It’s my favorite part of my day and refreshing. It’s always really fun, and I love that I can have fun while doing what I’m interested in at school.


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

I’d say that you should definitely get involved if you have any amount of interest. Even if you don’t think you have any artistic abilities, you’d be surprised to see what you can do when you’re taught the techniques. You don’t have to be a master of art going into anything, that’s not the goal. The goal is to learn more about your interests, grow in your understanding of yourself, and sculpt your potential skills. It’s so worth it to get involved in these classes because it’s more than just an art class. You get to be vulnerable and express things you might not know how to express. You get to learn about other people’s thought processes and meanings behind their work, and be inspired by them yourself. Being able to recognize the important aspects of life and society. Take advantage of the Fine Arts while you can. Even if you don’t do anything with art in your future, being able to know how to tap into the creative side of yourself is so important. It's something we need in the world.


Future Plans

My plans after Roger Bacon are to save up money to move towards one of my biggest dreams - moving to Arizona. I don’t really know what I’m going to do there exactly, but I know that’s where I want to be. I have considered going in art school for photography in my future, should that fall on my path. I’m sort of just going with the flow, which is a little out of character for me.
I just want to be happy with whatever it is I end up doing, where I am while doing it, and most importantly, happy with myself.


Other Involvement & Interests

I just finished my last season of tennis this Fall. It’s been a really great way to have good, lighthearted fun!

Because it’s one of the most inclusive communities in the school. My background didn’t matter when I joined the Drama Guild and I always felt like I had a home in the fine arts.

Favorite Memory

My favorite memory is definitely anything that I’ve done with RB3. The band is a great group of people and we all have this passion for music that we get to share, there is nothing like it. From sarcastic remarks that make everyone laugh to out of pocket comments, there’s never a moment that I don’t love being a part of RB3. The one thing I wish I did sooner was get involved with RB3.


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

If you’re doubting whether or not you want to do something in the Fine Arts at Bacon, just try that thing! I doubted for 3 years and didn’t join some things until my senior year and now I wish that I had. Try to get out of your comfort zone because that might be the best place for you.

Why are you involved in the Fine Arts at Bacon?

Drawing, painting, and creating in general has been my passion since I was little. Plus Mrs. Reinbach is a great art teacher, and one of the main reasons I’m so involved in Fine Arts at Roger Bacon. She really pushes her students to the best of their ability and she makes me want to see how far I can go with my art.

Favorite Memory

Making tools out of weird things and creating abstract art with them.


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

Everyone starts somewhere. So if you’re interested in the arts but you don’t feel confident in your skills, starting with taking a class and dedicating time to it is the best thing you can do.

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

For anyone who is interested in the Visual or Performing Arts - do it! It might seem intimidating at first but everyone is here to help and support you.

It is such an amazing experience and I am so glad I decided to get involved! Really put yourself out there and be creative!

Drama Guild, Our Miss Brooks (Jane), The Diary of Anne Frank (Swing), Suspense: A Radio Play (Mrs. Stevenson), Alice in Wonderland (Red Queen)


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!
