LETTER: ‘Art is up to interpretation’

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor:

“Imagination is God’s gift to the dreamer” —T.R. Wallace

Each year St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School hosts an annual art show. Our talented Art Teacher, Ms. Bonnie Bello, organizes the school-wide art show. You can imagine that this is no small undertaking.

During an art class Bello introduces an artist and his or her unique technique and style. Each grade is given a topic and a particular style that students are then to use in creating some form of art that reflects their own interpretation of that style. Each student has their own artistic ability and they are all applauded for their natural talent. As you walk through the art show you can feel the pride and excitement from the students. The experience is really something special.

In past years, winners were selected on various merits, but this year Bello wanted to give all her students the feeling of success and pride. “Art is up to interpretation and so who am I to pick one student over another? All my students are amazing and wonderful artists; they all are winners!”
