Juliana McCarthy, 7th grade, in her art class.

Juliana McCarthy is the artist of the month. She says that she was not really aiming towards this goal. Art to her is easy and sometimes challenging, but she does it because it is fun. Juliana also says that this is not the first art award she has received; she won other awards at Lawn Middle school in Rhode Island.

Ms. Hughes, GBMS art teacher, said, “Juliana works very hard in class as well as at home. She took the skills we learned about portraits and applied them at home.”

Ms. Hughes continued, “Art students are required to use easels for the rest of the third quarter. They are working on portraits, still life, landscape, and abstract art. Each of these four pieces are required to be balanced compositions. Additionally, the hues, values, and intensities are to be maximized in each. From these four, each student will choose his or her favorite to transfer to the printing block. The final quarter we will be focused on the art of printmaking from past to present. Look for Gulf Breeze Artists in our fast approaching competitive season!”

Juliana says that if you don’t try to be an artist, you won’t know if you can do it.
