Highlighting Hayfield artists

At Hayfield our art department shines above the rest. Everyone has their own paths after college but for most upper level art students, it’s something big and beyond into the world of creativity. In this feature, one high level art student from each of the three subset art courses will be shown with their future plans: 

Artwork by Jane Valdivieso


Jane Valdivieso is a senior this year in the AP Drawing course. Last year, she had gotten a 5 on her AP 2D Design portfolio and continues to showcase extraordinary work. Soon, Jane will be attending Rhode Island School of Design for Art and doing competitive cheer at Brown University. 


“I use art to express my emotions, often depicted in a surrealistic, exaggerated manner,” Valdivieso said.


Her work encourages the viewer to interpret her art in a way to spark conversation and reflect on their own lives. 



Artwork by Ty Fuentes

Ty Fuentes is also a senior this year, enrolled in Digital Art 4. He plans to become an illustrator and/or animator for a popular studio. Although not completely sure with his plans after art school, he knows he just wants to draw. 


“My work usually consists of portraits, as that’s what I’m best at,” Fuentes said.


Fuentes loves drawing fictional characters and occasionally his friends. His motivation derives from movies and references on Pinterest.


“As of right now, I want to get better at rendering, highlights, and colors in general,” Fuentes said.


Photo by Adelina Allred

Lastly, also a senior, is Adelina Allred. She is enrolled in Photography 3 this year. After graduating she plans to take a good sports photography program and go to fire fighting school. 


“I mainly do portrait photography of close friends, family and my hockey team. My motivation is to have a good time with my friends and to portray emotions in my photo stories,” Allred said. 


Adelina would like for her photographs to reach and “touch people’s heart and mind.”


These are just a few of the outstanding students within the Hayfield Art Department. Many of us have huge plans for the future and will be creating either freelance or professional work for companies.
