Many great artists come together to create works much bigger than themselves. This is no different in The Digital Arts Club, which joins the list of creative groups formed just this year.

Senior Caitlin Stearns, president, and founder of the club, said, “I wanted to have a memorable senior year, so I created this group.”

The goals of the club, Stearns said, is “to have other people who are into digital art and share the same interests be in the same place together.”

Stearns herself has a long history with art. “I’ve always liked art. I’ve been doing it since I was little, but I really got into drawing and digital art toward the end of my sophomore year.”

Other members of the club have similar interest in art. Sophomore and vice president Ruken Zira said, “I’ve been doing art since I was at least five or six. I like everything about it, the colors, the shapes. I also take the illustration class here.”

Sophomore Sara Chong said, “I’ve been drawing since I was in third grade and I love it. My favorite things to draw are manga or anime.” She was also involved in illustration at Ralston Middle School.

The members of the club bring their love for art together to do projects. Stearns said, “Before the club starts, all of the members are in their own worlds doing their own work, but when we begin, everyone comes together.”

The group revolves around their activities. “We’ve been designing shirts for other clubs, and we’ve already done one for Drumline. We’ve been trying to get some money to do our own club’s shirts.

In the outset of the year, however, the club ran into some turbulence. Stearns said, “In the beginning when we tried to figure out what projects to do, we realized that many members didn’t like the shirt idea. I didn’t really have a plan other than that, so we lost some members. Some people also suggested we do anime and animation. The problem was that not everyone knew how to draw that way.”

Despite those problems, Chong said the vibe of the club remains “relaxed and friendly,” and the club has since retained most of its members.

Many in the group have plans to do digital art for their careers. Both Chong and Stearns plan to work in animation, while Zira’s plans are to “go to art school,” hoping that her experiences in Digital Arts Club will prepare her for the future.
