On March 10, the sophomore scholars went on a fieldtrip to the Fountain Art Fair where they were able to see different kinds of art-making, which they were excited to learn about and looked forward to trying. Below are some of their experiences and reactions to this day.
Here in the Fountain Arts Fair, I seriously was about to scream like a little girl and run around in order to see everything. However, being the responsible teenager I am, I kept in my inner geek and calmly observed and talked to the artists. I was very impressed, for their chosen media seemed hard to control. Their work inspired me to become greater and better in mastering and understanding art and its different media.
Today’s trip to Rush Arts Gallery was very amazing and exciting. I traveled among different art areas. I got the chance to see how differently people can express their ideas. My favorite station was where an artist painted on human models. It’s incredible the way he mixed people with his drawings. I enjoyed walking from one station to another and talking about each of them with my classmates. It’s really great to listen when the artists share their opinions with you.

I believe that this gallery was really amazing! There were a lot of paintings and pictures that related to me, but it was creepy at some points. There were paintings of people standing up, which I loved, and also models who were being spray-painted. It was an incredible experience that I want to keep having for every gallery I go to.
