Mrs. Khurgel: AP 2D Design and Computer Graphics student, DANIEL O.
While Daniel works to balance the demands of taking three IHS art classes concurrently, in addition to an art class outside of school, he consistently produces high quality work with an eye for composition, color, and form.
MRS. PERALES’ NOMINATION FOR EMERGING ARTIST OF THE MONTH IS: AP DRAWING STUDENT, Yifei L.
As a sophomore this year, Yifei has not only demonstrated a high level of skill in her work, but an elevated level of thoughtfulness as well. She has the ability to work very literally, but has also been experimenting with mixed media and a variety of conceptual ideas. She enjoys discussing art and has a willingness to get out of her comfort zone to explore new ideas.
Mrs. Tucker’s nomination for Emerging Artist is: Advanced Photographer//AP2D student Lauren Cohen.
Lauren is a very intelligent and creative photographic arts student. In addition, she has a diligent work ethic and consistently explores new techniques. Lauren displays curiosity and perseverance when these processes don’t always result in “pretty pictures,” yet she does have a lot of those (pretty pictures) too. Lauren is in her 2nd year of Advanced Photo and is currently working on her AP 2D Portfolio.
MS. PHILLIPS’ CLASSES: VIDEO PRODUCTION // ADVANCED VIDEO PRODUCTION/ITV // ANIMATION
Advanced Video Production/iTV student, Juliana Cortes is exceptionally devoted to our iTV program. This year, Juliana is on our Board of Directors in the Department of Communications. Juliana has eagerly taken on the role as a top cinematographer, making her debut as Director of Photography in iTV Broadcast 17.05, and iTV Broadcast 17.1. Juliana has a thorough understanding of lighting techniques, technical knowledge of cameras, and an eye for detail and composition.
MRS. KHURGEL’S CLASSES: AP 2D // ADVANCED COMPUTER GRAPHICS // COMPUTER GRAPHICS
AP 2D student, Julia Hui’s narrative illustrations push the boundaries of two-dimensional design. Her detailed, well-observed drawings merge time and space, juxtaposing interrelated images together to produce elaborate narratives. Julia’s work allows the viewer to escape into a world of delicately balanced chaos. Julia is an independent thinker with strong command of her emerging creative expression.
Ms. Lux’s Draw/Paint Class
We have been studying contour line drawing. Alex Palikian was unhappy with the results of his efforts in class and continued to study and improve his techniques at home. Alex works very hard in and out of class. He sets high standards for himself.
MRS. PERALES’ NOMINATION FOR EMERGING ARTIST OF THE MONTH IS: AP DRAWING STUDENT, IRENE SUN
Though still in the early stages of her breadth work for her portfolio, Irene Sun has demonstrated extraordinary attention to detail and a high level of skill level within various mediums. She is thoughtful and focused on the direction of her work and takes great care of each piece. Irene is also capable of being both critical and confident in her work, as demonstrated in critiques and group discussions, which is a quality that will continue to push her work throughout the semester.
