Meet the Icon's Ada HS artist of the month

Brenna Hissong: "I like the idea of creating something new, something that didn't exist before and seeing the art go through the different stages from beginning to end"

This is the first in a monthly series
featuring Ada High School artists - 

Brenna Hissong, Ada High School senior, holds artwork that she started last spring and finished during remote learning. 

It's an acrylic "hard edge" painting on wood. The image she worked from is a photo of her running track. Brenna is currently in Art 4, and has taken Art 1, 2, and 3 during high school.

She is captain of the varsity girls' soccer team and also runs high school track.

About her interest in art, she says: "I have loved art from a very young age. Mrs. Sperling's elementary Art class was always one of my favorites. 

"I like the idea of creating something new, something that didn't exist before and seeing the art go through the different stages from beginning to end."

Gary Wells is the Ada High School art teacher.
