I finally jumped on the bandwagon with this one, and I don’t regret it. This one is a timeless gem of a show. “The Office” is a show that sounds really boring based on the plotline, but it’s really funny once you get into it. It’s about this group of people that work for a paper company ca...

This presidential election seems to be plagued with doubt and fear. A popular opinion among a fraction of students recently has been that our country is doomed, for lack of a better term. The reaction to Trump’s election seems to be either extremely positive or extremely negative. There are plenty of r...

It has been a rainy week for the United States of America, and subconsciously, this water theme has led me to paint the ocean. The hurricanes, tsunamis and rainstorms that have spread themselves across the entire world this week have been nothing less than wild and untamed, so whether I intended to or not...

This week, which so happens to have been homecoming week, has been a really hard week. I’ve fallen asleep on the floor way too many times while doing homework; I’ve found myself crying once or twice after coming home, and I really just want a nap. I was not prepared for this week and I suddenly fo...

Kendall Gaignat here, coming at you live from C-101 with a new blog I like to call, “Flix for You.” Over the summer, I was imagining how this school year would go, and I stressed myself out. Along with school and numerous other things on my mind, I thought it would be fun to write a blog and bein...

In the short moments when I want to draw, I will drop everything to draw. This is a quote from me, Avery Sheltra, at some point, I think. This is a piece I did awhile back, when I was struck with a sudden burst of inspiration at a friend’s house. I didn’t have a sketchbook, nor a pencil or any ...

This past weekend, I went to the annual Plaza Art Fair for the last of the two days it was in town. It was my first time going, and to say I loved it would be an understatement. Senior Shelby Hudson and I arrived on the Plaza an hour early, which I would recommend if you decide to go next year, to ...

Welcome back to A Better Big Apple. I have a quick announcement before I get to the thick of this week’s blog. Originally, when I thought of the idea to write A Better Big Apple in July, I planned on doing a list of local businesses every single week. I soon realized, though, that it’s sadly not ...

Hello, and welcome once more to Chen’s Canvas. Continuing with the iconic landmarks of Kansas City theme, I will give an overview of my piece, Union Station. This was actually the first project that I completed for this series. Why I decided to review it second? There is no reason.   So, what ex...
