Jacob H. Wooten, Reporter, Website Manager

March 21, 2017

We have learned to only view the visual and musical beauties of the Fine Arts without considering that not even our acting or dancing could be art. Performing Arts aside, Battle of the Art’s next observation is of the Applied Arts which has seen to be the most neglected of the artistic perceptions. De...

Battle of the Arts 4 : Fine vs Fine

Jacob H. Wooten, Reporter, Website Manager

March 21, 2017

Music is a special form of art. One that is split between Performing and Fine Arts. Focusing on the Fine Art side, with the rest of Fine Arts stuck in the moment of time it is framed, music is a wavering experience that comes and goes in the moment notes leave the instrument and fade upon invisible yet exp...

Battle of the Arts 2 : Fine vs Performing

January 27, 2017

Performing is typically an art believed to be just an art rather than Fine Art. In reality, performing makes up its own art form which is the third art category that Battle of the Arts will observe. Performing Art is debatably the only art category that can put up a challenge to the music side of Fine Arts ...

‘Bye Friend’

Sierra Hodges, Reporter

It’s a “hey pal” or a “hi friend” that makes her who she is. She’s known by name but even more by voice throughout the school. Senior Cortney Wood is known personally by all of the administration and most of the staff. She has such a great personality that they always have good things...

‘Rise Red As The Dawn’, Read Red Queen

Cortney Wood, Co-Editor in Chief

May 23, 2016

Periodically throughout a year, book nerds absolutely spaz out over a new book and rave about it continuously. As many books as I read a year, I tend to fall in love with characters, or places, or ideas, but I really haven’t found a series that I am in LOVE with since fourth grade when I was introduced...

The countdown is on. Only a handful of days linger until the final bell rings on May 27 and I am finished with high school forever, and I’m finally okay saying I am a senior and I am ready to graduate.
