HHS AP Art Student Matilda Pinjuv: I make art because I think art is cool. It's a great way to express creativity and stuff. I also really like looking at art and seeing people's creative vision and learning the actual process behind artwork. Art is a great way to communicate thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a way to be understood and appreciated by others. It also helps to see the world in new ways and new perspectives. I also enjoy being able to make something I think looks cool and seeing my ideas come to life. I get a lot of inspiration from different types of media and also the things I experienced. My art focuses on my dreams and how they affect my reality and vice versa.
HHS AP Art Student Lily Toenjes: My name is Lily Toenjes and I am a senior at Hamilton High School. Art has been one of my passions for as long as I can remember. It all started when I would paint in Barbie coloring books, and then it progressed into something that is very important in my life. Art is my therapy. I can express myself in ways I can’t while speaking… and it’s always there for me. I love the freedom I have while creating art. I use art as an outlet for myself and this piece demonstrates reflecting on my past and how that can feel chaotic and at times scary.
Art from HHS AP Art Student Ella Seltzer: Hi, my name is Ella. I'm a senior in highschool in AP art working on building my portfolio which is based on how my past affects me in my everyday life. Art is something I have used to help me through different stages and difficult times in my life. In this piece I’m reflecting on my past and showing emotions of feeling trapped.

Tennis update from Coach Dufresne about their away matches against Dillon yesterday: Bleary eyed early morning. Check. Blizzard upon arrival in Dillon. Check. Team bonding in the Patagonia Outlet waiting out the storm. Check. Great day of tennis when the sun came out (in spurts). Check. Wind. Check. Graupel. Check. Sleet. Check. Camaraderie over a pool table, juke box and dinner at Papa T's. Check. Clutch piece of bus driving through a windy, low visibility Big Hole winter storm. Check. Spending a classic Western Montana spring day of tennis with one heck of a group of student athletes. Priceless.
