Three seniors in the top audition only class have written an original one act play entitled “Under the Pine Tree”. Congratulations to the writers - Felicity Bonilla, Helena Carellas, and Bella Fuentes! This beautiful piece explores difficult topics including assault, consent, the media’s portrayal of truths, and finding one’s path to empowerment. ”Under the Pine Tree” will be completely student-directed, designed, and performed by members of Mrs. Chase’s Comp Theatre class.

Congratulations to the following cast members Amiel Bagay, Isaac Council, Madison Gotham, Pia Hernandez, Alaena Mamuyac, Kieron McKitterick, Jona Meier, and Edwin Perez.

AP Studio Student Spotlight
AP Studio Student Spotlight

The first nine weeks has quickly come and gone, and the AP Studio students at Lake Nona HS have been knocking it out of the park! As we all know by now, the school year has looked dramatically different. The visual arts team has been working diligently to create thoughtful and creative solutions to a multitude of unprecedented challenges so that students can continue to have a quality visual arts experience.

For those that are unfamiliar, the AP Studio exam is certainly unique. Throughout the course of the year, students create a portfolio of work to demonstrate inquiry through art and design and development of materials, processes, and ideas. Portfolios include works of art and design, process documentation, and written information about the work presented.

Now, to be clear- students aren’t just creating random works of art, they are focusing on a theme or inquiry which is called their “Sustained Investigation”, where they produce a series of sequential visual forms—forms growing from forms—to explore in greater depth a particular visual concern.

All that to say, these kids are killing it this year, and as their teacher-- I couldn’t be more proud. You wouldn’t know that they have the limitations that they do, but they are still rising above the craziness that has been 2020. That’s just what lions do. Check out some of the works they have made so far below!
