Visual arts is a fun elective for filming and acting. This elective is held by Mr. Josh Buby in Room 16 for sixth, seventh, and eighth graders.
Aarushi M. and Olivia M. picked visual arts as their elective and they will tell us why they chose it…
“To be honest I don’t even know why I picked visual arts, but when I got into it, it helps you with overcoming stage fright and it helped me a lot. I’m so glad I picked this elective,” said Aarushi.
Olivia agrees with Aarushi for choosing an elective on visual arts.
“I love to film. I want to be an actress when I get older so this can help me,” said Olivia M.
How visual arts works is that Buby gives an assignment of a certain category. A group of students pick a topic from that category and then make a storyboard, which are different scenes from the film organized in a certain order. This process takes a month and a half.
After each group is done with there act and film, they each present in front of the whole class. This gives you confidence to be in front of a crowd.
If you’re interested in this elective, try it out and see how you like it. Maybe you will really enjoy filming and acting with your friends too.
