Culinary


Culinary Student Luke Eller

Luke Eller

Hello, I’m Luke Eller. I was born in Omaha, Nebraska in 2006. At the end of March 2021, I started Culinary for the first time. When I started Culinary class, I instantly fell in love with it. I loved cooking and even though I really struggled at first, I kept trying to do my best and put 100% effort into my work. I slowly improved my skills and began to work past my early mistakes. I love Culinary because I get to try new things and express myself creatively in my work.

Growing up, I never got to cook that much due to my living situations so Culinary class was the first time I was truly able to cook and express myself artistically. Culinary is a way to show my passion and love for what I’m doing. Making new things and learning about different foods and their culture and origins is what I love about Culinary class.

One of my favorite things to cook in the kitchen is sushi. I liked cooking this because it was something really different from what I’m used to.  Another thing that I enjoyed cooking was I made chicken nachos to pair with a homemade salsa. I enjoyed this dish because it was a chance to show creativity and to try and make something in a different way than how others tend to make it.

Culinary Student Jinniyah Humo

Jinniyah Humo

My name is Jinniyah Humo, I was born in Tucson Arizona in 2002. My first experience in Culinary with Chef  was when I started at Compass High School in August 2019. I was first drawn to this school because I saw that it had a Culinary program. I was excited to be able to learn new recipes and learn about new kinds of foods from all kinds of different places. Chef even got me to try new foods that I never would have before. I even found some new kinds of foods I never thought I would like and others I can say I will never try again. 

My influences came from when I was younger and I would see my mom and nana cook foods that I loved and that made me want to learn so I could make the foods I loved on my own and maybe be able to cook foods for others that would make them happy or maybe make something that someone else might make their favorite food. As I got older I would watch cooking shows all the time so I could see what kinds of food other people would make. I loved watching people in cooking competitions like Chopped because I thought it was amazing the kinds of dishes they were able to make even when they had to use ingredients they may not have been used to.

Lon Nickerson

My name is Lon Nickerson. I was born in South Seoul, Korea and have moved to Tucson. My first experience with working with e-art was this year, when I heard that Multimedia was going to be so much fun. I have really enjoyed all of the projects we have done in this multimedia. It’s really something when you see other students work so hard on something that could take someone with more experience a day to work on. I am so glad that I heard from other people that multimedia was going to be so much fun.

I am submitting my conservation project; a Dr. Pepper can, and my Low poly animal project. What inspires me is my great friend and how he is always willing to talk to me about our personal beliefs and help me understand things better in life. I really enjoy working with Low poly art and filming in multimedia.

Luca Myers

My name is Luca Myers, I was born in Tucson Arizona in 2004. My first experience in Culinary was in March-April 2021. Chef took me under his wing and excitedly, I learned many culinary skills I had never known. I learned recipes for good food and was completely inspired to pursue culinary as a career. Cooking has become a passion of mine because of Chef and his culinary class, and I hope to incorporate his teachings into all my future endeavors.

When I was young I always loved the cooking shows, whether they were casual baking, or intense cooking under Gordan Ramsey’s command. The process of starting with a handful of common ingredients and coming up with something that looked absolutely mouth watering was always so appealing to me. Although I loved the shows so much, I was very hesitant to ever cook on my own due to the fear of the stoves, but Chef guided me and I grew to become the confident young chef I am today.

Madison Nelson

My name is Madison , I was born in Tucson Arizona, United states of America in 2004. My first experience with clay was a couple years ago and I have taught myself to do so many things with it and found my own method with my art this year. Taking the class has shown me more ways to improve my skills and learn more about what I’m doing. I make what makes me happy and there isn’t more to it.

Savinya Kimball

My name is Savinya Kimball, I am from Portland Oregon and I am an aspiring young artist.

My art has been influenced greatly by my father, he was an amazing tattoo artist and poet, and he passed down his love of the arts to me. Many other artists have helped me carefully cultivate my art style and have taught me many things. I am grateful to so many for the journey I have gone through to get my art where it is now.

My art is a reflection of how I feel or what I think, as I struggle with saying what I mean. I suffer from a few mental illnesses and art and poetry have been one of the most helpful things to me in my struggles. I hope to one day become a tattoo artist like my father before me.

Hunter Tam

Hiya! I’m Hunter. I was born in Tucson, Arizona in 2002 and have fortunately spent a large majority of my life here. I’ve lived in Nebraska and Colorado as well, but Tucson has certainly held the most influence over myself. Supposedly, my earliest experiences with art were when I was just a few months old. My mother has always been very proactive with art, and I can’t say I blame her. I’ve grown to aspire to become an avid artist, and I love every moment of the process of getting there – even the worst days. Of course, each project merits its own challenges and hardships, but I love the pride I feel when I finally reach the crest of that hill and conquer the challenge, especially when I have created a piece I can be genuinely content with.

Rene Washington Soto

Project Name: Rainbow Reality

There was no inspiration for this piece, I made it with a mind-to-paper strategy. I just freestyled it.  I don’t have a particular style, so I decided to use oil pastels randomly. I thought it would be a good idea for a piece like this and it came out with a form of symbolism.

Multimedia


Katherin Argenziano

My name is Katie Argenziano.  A lot of things inspire me, like just random things. I usually like to hear or see other people’s Ideas and twist them in my own way. I also like to do things based off life and stories like how people feel. Like I did an artist skull drippy paint looking annoyed because art isn’t easy and sometimes it takes people more practice then others. I like more pencil and paint and I do realism and cartoon style, I like both.

Emilio Cardona

My name is Emilio Cardona also known as Milo. I was born in Tucson Arizona in 2006. My entry to the art show will be the penguin low-poly animal project and the avatar creation of the new leaf starter Pokemon. 

My first art project was in elementary where I used watercolors, and I primarily work with digital art. I primarily joined multimedia because at that moment my only two options were art and multimedia and I thought to myself that if I’m going to suffer a boring class I would rather do Multimedia because I had some past experiences with working with digital art through the use of Paint.net. At first I hated dealing with the fact that I was forced into such a “boring topic” but after being in the class for about 3 weeks the subject grew on me. My favorite class became Multimedia and doing fun art projects became my favorite thing to do in school. My main influence for digital art is that it’s fun and it pays off. I’ve never considered looking into a career involving digital arts, however it’s still a passion that I will always come back to.

Nicholas Hernandez

My name is Nicholas Xavier Hernandez, I was born in 2007. My first experience in Multimedia  was when I wanted to try drawing on photoshop like all the big youtubers. 

My Greatest influences are my friends, virtual reality , some art youtubers like Jazza, Tabletop Time and Real terrain hobbies.  I wouldn’t be here without my friends’ support and ideas. The memories we share is something I hold truly dear and it inspires me to be something greater.

Virtual reality has brought a new spark in my life to see things completely different with so many worlds to  explore. I was shocked and excited to see where this world would go just to know that a few 1s and 0s can change your plain old room into a beautiful landscape that looks crafted by the gods.

Most of all the youtubers who inspired me to become even greater at my art and ideas. Jazza is a cunning and massive brained person when it comes to dumb and fun ideas that really change the way that art is seen. Table top time is a group of people that do miniature landscapes and minifigures for board games and such. The projects they’ve done inspired me to greaten my knowledge and the outside world. Lastly, Real Terrain Hobbies is also a channel that does landscapes and miniatures but he’s just one guy creating such awesome things to allow me to realize that even just one person can do anything they desire to. Fun ideas that really change the way that art is seen. 

Jalissa Gorosave

My name is Jalissa. Born in Tucson, Arizona in 2007. I work primarily in photoshop. My influences are Nicki Minaj.

Jasmin Hanft-Barker

My name is Jasmin I. Hanft-Barker.  I was born in Tucson, Arizona in 2003. My first experience with the multimedia class was when I was in yearbook class in middle school 8-grade year.

My influences are Lasca Lawniczak, Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Willem van Gogh, Johannes Vermeer, Robert Norman Ross a.k.a Bob Ross.

Kennedy Jones

My name is Kennedy Jones. I was born in Pima, Arizona in 2004, and moved to Tucson just over a year ago. My first experiences with painting was when I began experimenting with new mediums during the pandemic, trying to maintain a creative outlet while being stuck at home. I discovered that I had a passion for creating abstract art, as well as using my favorite characters from media as subjects. This led me to take Multimedia this school year, as I wanted to branch out into other, digital mediums. I particularly enjoy using photoshop to create collages representing myself and those I am closest with. I am often inspired by my family and friends, and the things we have in common, such as our favorite patterns, flowers, and hobbies. My influences are mostly drawn from my favorite movies, books, music, artists, as well as my family and friends. My favorite artists who I draw inspiration from are Yayoi Kusama, Johannes Vermeer, and Claude Monet. I most enjoy using mediums that include acrylics, oil pastels, and photoshop.

Erick Johnson

My name is Erick Johnson, I was born in 2007 and my class is multimedia. This class was my first ever experience with any type of graphic design, that is if you don’t count 3d modeling. By far my favorite projects would have to be the autobiography, Low Poly Animal Project, and the planet project. I prefer to work with vector art given that you make everything from scratch. I wouldn’t say I have any inspirations, all I’m trying to do is have fun with what I do.

Ryleigh Kerley

Hello, my name is Ryleigh Kerley, I was born in Tucson, Arizona in 2005 on January 23rd. I’ve had a strong passion for photography and graphic design since I was younger but my first experiences with multimedia started just this year. After learning many useful skills about operating photo editing and enhancing software, I feel more confident that I can capture beautiful moments around the world.

Remy Telles

My name is Remy Telles. I was born here in Arizona and practically lived here my whole life. I first got into art at a young age. I used to see my sister do a lot of art before when I was young, and it inspired me to do art. I mostly draw but I also paint and do crafts when I can to try and work myself to do different things. But ever since I first learned about art, I wanted to become an artist so I try to do mainly drawing so I can become better at it. Along with painting, I always try to do some painting projects when I can and I love when I do them. I mostly work with acrylic but at times I do love to work with water colors. When I do water colors, to me it feels calming because of how smooth the brush could be. I always get inspiration everywhere I go, it could be from a video I watched or even just going outside, because of how much detail there is in the world, especially sunsets, with how many colors there is and how beautiful it is. Art has been an important part of my life and it makes me become more creative.

Phelan Kristianson

My name is Phelan Kristianson, I was born in California 2005. My first experience with graphic design was funny enough this class (also Microsoft paint 3D) and was when I moved here to this state. Anything that catches my eye I usually would like to replicate. 

The project that I am submitting for this show is pretty much just called Cabybara spelled wrong with a B.

Usually my thing is drawing but it would be good for me to get experienced somewhat with graphic design.

Dylan McCann

My name is Dylan. I was born in Yuma Arizona in 2006. I moved to Tucson after I was 3. I live in Tucson now but my first experience with a camera was when I was young and now working in this multimedia class I have created 3 projects. 1 of them being the low poly animal project. Things that inspire me are content creation. I like to work with editing but don’t know much about it.

Hunter Tam

Hiya! I’m Hunter. I was born in Tucson, Arizona in 2002 and have fortunately spent a large majority of my life here. I’ve lived in Nebraska and Colorado as well, but Tucson has certainly held the most influence over myself. Supposedly, my earliest experiences with art were when I was just a few months old. My mother has always been very proactive with art, and I can’t say I blame her. I’ve grown to aspire to become an avid artist, and I love every moment of the process of getting there – even the worst days. Of course, each project merits its own challenges and hardships, but I love the pride I feel when I finally reach the crest of that hill and conquer the challenge, especially when I have created a piece I can be genuinely content with.

My influences are my mother, other digital artists I’ve seen online, and largely just concepts I like the idea of messing with. I am most often inspired by the feel of the medium itself, or the way the colors blend together. I just like watching and feeling as each stroke and motion makes progress in the picture. I most often use digital software, but I like to dabble in all mediums. Just plain pencil is my best, however I am willing to try most anything from sculpting to painting to chalk. I have emotions that I like to try to convey in each piece, often through the use of dynamic movement, strokes with emphasis in direction, and poses that convey certain levels of energy. I truly enjoy the idea of creating something visually pleasing as well. Choosing good colors, working through the composition, emphasis, and proportions of each artwork can be rewarding in itself as well, and I wholeheartedly enjoy the process of learning all the while. I feel I approach art from more of a technical standpoint than an emotional standpoint, though I would like to alter that as I produce more projects so I can develop into a more well-rounded artist.

My mother, Josiah “Jazza” Brooks, Casey Golden, DrawingWiffWaffles, SamDoesArts, RossDraws, and Marc Brunet are all people who inspire why I do what I do, as well as how I do it. I love the message they spread of being free and open about my art while also carrying forth the idea of constant progress. They understand it’s a journey to evolve skills, and keeping their minds open to the fact that progress is not linear is also important for me to keep in mind. I plan to become similar to them in that I hope to spread a message of compassion. Each person takes their own journey, at their own paces and to their own destinations. It’s important to remember you can take your time, even if it does not always feel like it. I will get where I want to be one day, but until then, I will just continue doing what I love – making pieces that make me proud.

Jayson Potter

I’m not sure what inspires me, I feel like I just do it because I want to and not because there is a reason for it but if there was inspiration behind it it would be to make something cool and unique. I like editing pictures and making them look the best they can in my eyes.

August Lowe

Hi! My name is August and I am a freshman here at Compass. My first experience with digital art was this year during my multimedia class. I’ve always had an interest for digital art, but never had the tools to do it. This class gave me the opportunity to experiment and try out many forms of digital art, such as vector art and pixel art. Something that has inspired me is video games. From a young age I fell in love with the art style, the gameplay, the music, just everything about video games. Recently, my inspiration has been a little indie game titled “Deltarune” by Toby Fox. The way he can build worlds with charming characters, compelling stories, and beautiful soundtracks amazes me. So for this art show, I will be submitting a pixel art of Ralsei, and a vector art of Spamton, from Deltarune.

Ray Robold

My name is Ray Robold . I was Born in Tucson Arizona and have lived here my whole life. I started drawing when I was very little, about 2 or 3. My older brothers used to draw a lot and I looked up to them and wanted to draw as well. I remember trying for years and years to get as good as my brothers. So hearing brothers today say all these nice things about my art makes me very happy with where I came with my art in about 13 years of drawing. Recently I started trying to do Digital art too. I really like the things I create and I hope you do as well. I work primarily with pencils and paper, but digitally I use my phone on an app called Ibis Paint and use my finger. Usually for digital art I drew it traditionally originally and colored it digitally. My biggest inspirations with art have been my brothers, friends, and many artists such as The_Raz_Kun, Nillaket, Pondering_Critter, Akamii, SerperiorGleaf, ren.nomiya, FriccaFracc, lounixxu, Li.n.arts, Jaiden_Animations, Theodd1sout, Theamaazing, Spooder_aeshetics, and many many more.

I try to make all of my pieces not just Songs, but Experiences. I want my songs to be something you can feel or see.
