With great artwork comes great creativity

Artfest 2024 has finally kicked off and there is no shortage of student participation and creativity with art pieces from every art class like Computer Graphics, Photography, painting and drawing with a variety of formats like drawings, paintings, sculptures and more.

Like previous years, students have provided a huge variety of work branching from self-portraits, necklaces, vases and everything in between, showing how far students will go to express their artistic abilities. This essential part of South’s Artfest is what helps separate it from other art shows in the area. Ceramics student Anne Wayman ’24 said that the vast difference in art produced by students is what makes it special compared to other art shows.

“One big element that makes South’s art show different from the others I have seen is definitely the versatility in the artwork,” Wayman said. “The artists from South are very unique, and all produce one-of-a-kind pieces of art.”

But with great artwork comes a massive amount of hard work, students had to spend days helping to set up Artfest in preparation for the event with various jobs given by Art teacher Alexander Finney to make sure everything ran smoothly. Art student Malachi Morrow ’26 said they are glad to be able to be part of the process of setting everything up for the event and being present in the effort put in by students and teachers alike.

“There was a lot of direction and hands-on jobs given by Mr. Finney and every class period, especially the week before and the week during Art Fest seemed to be bustling with work,” Morrow said. “I’m so glad I was able to get more of a hands-on experience this year! Seeing everyone be so dedicated, supportive, and just amazing inspired me so much.”

Ronin McCracken ’26, Staff Writer
Drawing. Painting. Printmaking. Photography. After a summer spent unleashing his creativity through every possible medium, Ronin McCracken ’26 is ready to take on a brand new one: journalism. As a first year staff writer for The Tower, McCracken isn’t sure what he wants to write just yet, but he’s looking forward to voicing his thoughts in opinion stories in the coming year. “If I see a story that I like, I’ll just try to do that the best I can,” McCracken said. When he isn’t making art or chasing down his next big story, McCracken can be found with a controller in hand, fighting his way out of yet another Mortal Kombat chapter beside his closest friends. An avid gamer for many years, McCracken said he can hardly remember a time without a console. “I remember having a Wii when I was really little,” McCracken said. “We still have it, but it’s not even usable anymore. That was probably the first time I ever played a video game--I don’t even know how young.”
