Art Club recently touched up on yet another community service project. This time, artists embarked on the opportunity to also experiment with digital art. With their devices and pens, members created pieces of artworks that were virtually sent over to two senior centers: Casa de Mañana and Carlsbad by the Sea. The seniors enjoyed the lovely works on their internal communications app and posted across their digital signage.
Artists enjoyed this project because this was the perfect chance for them to test out their talents within another medium of art (one that conveniently fits with the virtual reality of senior centers!).
Art Club member Shane Beste ’24 states, “It was fun to try digital art for the first time, and I liked how open of a project it was (we could choose our topic). I didn’t really worry about how good the art was, or who to address it to, but I liked that laid-back attitude.”
“It’s been really fun doing something to brighten people’s days. This project really just goes to show me that an act of kindness in no way has to be humongous; it can be as simple as drawing a picture for someone! Experimenting with digital art was really fun, too. It’s not something I get to use every day, so getting to work outside of my comfort zone was really cool,” adds Katy Silva ’23.
Katelyn Wang ’23 concludes: “I am most thrilled about how enjoyable this project was for the members of Art Club. Being able to dive into new mediums of art is so impressive and refreshing, I am glad that Art Club was able to extend that experimentation. Plus, the seniors loved it – all this for such a great purpose!”
