Sophomore Ofelia Yeghiyan received good news when her poster was accepted as the advertisement for the district art show.

The poster was part of a finals project in her digital media class. She said, “Our finals project was to design a poster. There was three or four digital art classes and they basically just went through the pool of everybody’s posters and just picked the one that they thought would work best for the show.”

She worked hard on her poster in class whenever she could and it took an extended amount of time. She said, “I think it took me like two or three days to complete.”

The tenth grader was very happy after finding out from her teacher that her poster was chosen to publicize the show. She said, “It’s really exciting; I was really thrilled when I found out and think it’s really cool.”

The sophomore says that she added her own twist to the prompt of the poster which became the subject of her design. She said, “The tagline we had to use, ‘art for arts sake’, to me sounded like the answer to a question so I used the question ‘why art?’ as an attention grabber/start and incorporated artsy stuff from there.”

The poster told everybody about the art show and contained colors and mini artwork throughout. She said, “The background is black and it stays within a Mayfield color scheme, so it’s green, black, and white. The word ‘why’ is in a green gradient splatter, the word ‘Art’ is in big letters with actual art inside of it, and the rest is the details of the show plus a film strip type gallery showing other pieces of artwork.”

Yeghiyan thinks that she was chosen due to her take on the project and it standing out and being different. She said, “I think [the poster] was really attention grabbing and overall the design was modern so I suppose that helped.”

She has been drawing and been fascinated with art for a while, but middle school is when her passion really started. She said, “I used to do it as a little kid too but I really got passionate about it in middle school.”

Yeghiyan has always enjoyed the creative aspect of art and having her own creative freedom to do what she wants. She said, “I like being able to take my creative spin on everything, so when I would look at a picture and then be able to draw and change it and have the creative freedom to do what I want with it and still turn it into something I like.”

She said she really enjoys drawing and creating and wants to carry that joy to the future with her. She said, “I think I might wanna take up something like graphic design ‘cause I really like working with Photoshop and making design…I’m really passionate about it.”
