Interhouse Mascot Paint In
Having returned from the December Break, students are eager to join classes and contribute to their houses by participating in new interhouse events. This year, students and Mr Luna have organized an event calling artists from every house to showcase their painting skills in the new Interhouse Paint In Challenge. This event requires artists to paint an image of their house’s designated mascot in the lobby of Crooks Hall using watercolours or oil paints.
To briefly described some of the images, from Ellis House we have a Bob Ross interpretation alongside a magical unicorn statue. Gregor B, Ellis ‘22 said it took him over “4 hours” of time to be completed. Mackenzie House has painted an elegant frog filling the canvas with mystic colors of white and predominantly green. Privett’s abstract design of the ram encompassed by a blue theme brightly stands out from the other paintings. Hope designed a pink dragonfly with a bright pink tail ideally depicting their mascot. Whittall and Rogers started a little late, but nonetheless delivered Whittall’s bull and Roger’s pirate manifesting the orange and gold theme colors of the house. Jaxon M, Rogers ‘22, claims that he “enjoyed” painting the demonstrating his art skills and loved the support from his house. Alex House painted a dinosaur reflecting the prehistoric ages and Allard painted an image of an alluring mermaid filled with colors and sparkle.
No matter what the outcome of the event is, it is safe to conclude that all individuals who took part in this competition enjoyed it and were happy to display their art skills and at the same time contribute to the artistic culture of Brentwood.
