IMG-3935What is your favorite thing about the sport you play? My favorite thing about tennis is how thrilling and intense it can be at times during a match. Many underestimate tennis players because they think it is an easy sport but in reality it is super fun to play and it is always nice seeing new faces and making friends. Victor Leon, 10 Boys Tennis

What do you enjoy most about the sport you play? Once game time comes, once you step in the box, it’s competing you against the pitcher.You can’t think of your mechanics, you gotta just let your natural abilities take over. Knowing how hard the game of baseball is, knowing you can go 3 for 3 one game and strikeout four times the next makes the sport so interesting a fun. Ray Rodriguez, 11 Boys Baseball

WOODLAKE ART FIELD TRIP

By: Victoria Benevidez

On February 16, 2018, Woodlake Art Club went on a field trip to CalArts in Valencia, California. They have five specific schools of art offered on their campus: Dance, Film/Video, Art, Theater, and Music. The school was founded by Walt Disney and his brother Roy in 1961. CalArts was officially founded in 1970.

“Innovators from CalArts have set the leading edge of contemporary artistic practice from conceptualism, feminist art and design, video and computer music in the early years, to the Disney Renaissance, Pixar revolution, and Spongebob from interdisciplinary performance and digital design to the latest directions in creative music, interactive media, hybrid arts and immersive experience.” (CalArts catalogue)

Famous art professionals who attended CalArts include: Tim Burton (Nightmare Before Christmas, Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands), Don Cheadle (Hotel Rwanda, Crash), Stephen Hillenburg (Spongebob), and Ed Harris (Apollo 13, The Truman Show). Students enjoyed the exposure to the offerings on campus and ate lunch on campus. IMG_1935IMG_1939
