The Art Department’s annual Art Faire is ending today, and has been taking place for the past two days.  The faire is an event at which art pieces from all classes and clubs are put on display.  The Artery will not have its typical booth at the faire since its advisor, Drawing and Painting teacher Van Nguyen, is on leave.  The fair is a chance for the rest of the school to admire their hard work and for the students to proudly display their projects.
The Faire is always a collaboration between all three art teachers, Photography teacher Ian Tippetts, Sculpture teacher Noreen Rubay and Ms. Nguyen. All the teachers have their own section to display their students’ work.
“Personally, I do quite like the Art Faire.  It’s a really easy and accessible way for the students in the art department to show off their work without having to awkwardly ask people if they want to see it,” says junior Jade Gallimore.
To the outsider it might seem intimidating to have a piece on display for all the world to see, but the students relish at the chance to have their works hanging proudly.
“I feel proud that my artwork and photos are good enough to be hung up to even be seen by other people.  I share my artwork with family and friends and have shared my artwork with countless others so it’s not a new feeling, but a good one,” says senior art student Rebecca Rossini.
Many of these students have been a part of the art department for their entire high school lives. Every faire is a chance for them to mark their artistic progress.
“My first faire was in my freshman year,” recalls senior Kelly Chau.  “Ms. Nguyen displayed our class’s stipple artwork.  It felt like such a long time ago—looking at my piece now, it’s cool to see how far I’ve come.”
