After two years of rising through the ranks of the studio art program, students in studio
art 3 have completed one of the biggest projects of their high school careers: the triptych.
A triptych is a set of three different pieces, connected through a theme, medium or
inspiration, and are meant to be appreciated together. Student work was periodically checked
throughout different stages of the process and ranged from self-portraits to nature scenes as
the triptych is meant to give artists the opportunity to create freely.
“From beginning to end it is independent in concept and in choice of medium. Students
come up with their own designs, their own inspirations, their own choice of medium, plan it out
and have checks and phases of critiques so that the end result is pleasing and something
entirely their own,” art teacher Leanne Argonish said.
Although the triptych yields amazing results, it requires intense concentration and
motivation that are not without its ups and downs.
“Sometimes it’s hard for me to focus on it for a long amount of time. After an hour of
working on it I tend to get a little bored or fed up because you just have to keep refining the
details and it just gets too much sometimes,” student Everly Kase said.
After all the time and effort dedicated to these pieces, they can now be enjoyed in the bus
