Student Art of the Week: Mia Adams’ Monroe elephant

Julia Mascaro, Feature Editor

Senior Mia Adams is a student of Mr. Wallisch’s Art 2 class. After taking Art 1, Adams loved painting and drawing and wanted to continue to develop her talents.

Although Adams is very gifted at art, she does not want to go to school for it. She is going to CCAC and is still undecided.

To any upcoming artist, Adams would say, “It’s not always going to look great the first time, but as long as you keep trying you will get better.”

Her favorite artist is Youtube star Josiah Brooks, also known as DrawWithJazza.

Adams created an airbrushed photo of Marilyn Monroe’s body with an elephant head. Mr. Wallisch gave an assignment that the students had to create something different every time; it was more of an abstract assignment.

Adams was inspired to airbrush this because she came across her stencil projects, which included a similar piece. This took her about a week to complete. She would call this piece, “Elephant Head.” Her favorite part was the overall finished product.
