Art Can Change the World

By: Zach Morris/Senior Writer

According to the Blue Ridge High School art teacher, Sarrah Dibble-Camburn, art can be a medium for social change.

For that reason, Camburn assigned her portfolio art class a social concern project. Each student was asked to respond artistically to a social concern of his/her choice.

“The reason that I picked this subject is because I want the students to realize that they can change the world with their art,” said Camburn.

According to Repella, it wasn’t difficult to pick her topic for the social concern project.

“I chose pollution because it affects people all over the world. In my painting I am trying to depict how pollution makes nature ugly.”

Student projects include an acrylic dramatization of ocean pollution by junior Sydney Repella, a mixed media depiction of depression by senior Bernadette Harris, and an abstract sculpture  representing anorexia and bulimia by senior Dorie Penny.

Camburn says, “I think that it is good for our students to express and share their viewpoints with others, and it’s good for our students to see other points of view.”
