Artistic senior Steff Beckman is in Mr. Wallisch’s Art 2 class. Beckman joined this class to use her ability of art to reduce stress. Although she is very skillful at her talent in art, she does not want to go to school for it. Instead, she would like to attend Duquesne and major in education to become a teacher.

Beckman has a lot of artists that she looks up to, but her favorite is Banksy.

Beckman had the help of Mr. Hooton, another art teacher at BPHS, who inspired this skull painting.

She used a mix of both tempera and acrylic paints to finalize the two-and-a-half week’s of work. Beckman would call this artwork ‘Psych’ because, “it looks cool.” Her favorite part of the piece is the circles within the squares.

To any ambitious artist, Beckman says, “Do not judge your painting until you are done. You might hate it in the process, but you will like it when it is done.”
