Students try sculpting with clay

Mark Walbridge’s Sculpting and Ceramics consists of experimenting with clay, making projects, and learning about various different famous artists. Hannah Jackson is a senior who is currently taking the class.

“We learn about different artists and then either we make a replica of an artist’s work,” she said, “or we do a project Mr. Walbridge wants.”

Walbridge offers many different projects for the students as well as lets them come up with their own ideas. This class does require a creative mind, so students must be able to come up with their own concepts and be able to interpret distinct works of art differently.

“I love the class; getting to make stuff out of clay, and when you really try you can make some pretty creative stuff,” Jackson said.

Jackson has been able to finish her projects early, allowing her to work on anything she wants.

“I just finished a free project (because I finished all my other projects), and I made a candle holder for my mom,” she said.

I am Janae Griffin, a senior at Gull Lake High School. I love to read and write, but I find it hard to sit down and do either with my busy schedule. I have a cat, Nikita, who keeps me company on days that I don't have plans. When I'm not at work, I'm either at dance or spending time with my friends and family. I'm just an ordinary 18 year old girl wandering through life, not a clue what I'm doing or where I'm going in the next three years, but I am quite content with just going with the flow of life.
