Mrs. Jesse’s Art and Music Project

By: Carissa Zawiski/Sophomore Writer

High School Spanish teacher, Mrs. Lucrecia Jesse, has been doing an art and music project for 10 years in her Spanish classes.

“The art project is one that gives the students an opportunity to look at different types of art and music from Spanish and Latin American countries. The students then research the artist and/or musicians and recreate an art or music piece,” said Jesse.

She also added that the students enjoy the project and take pride in their work.

Some of the students who participated in this project included Lydia Andusko, Brandon Gentile, Benjamin Gudykunst, Jenna McCarthy, Breanna Post,  Anthony Torres, and many more.

Art and music of Spanish artists recreated by the students included painters Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, and Joan Miro. Some of the musicians included Fernando Obradors, and Ritchie Valens.

Sophomore, Breanna Post stated that the artist she chose was Joan Miro and that she chose him because “his paintings looked cool and vibrant.” She also mentioned that she had a fun time working on the project.

Sophomore, Jenna McCarthy agreed with Post that she had a fun time working on the project, but she also stated that it was time consuming. McCarthy added that she chose Gabriella D’Alssandro because her piece ‘Tangled’ was “the most visually interesting” to her.

Jesse commented on the students’ work saying, “the students did a great job and should be proud of themselves.”
