BHS Icon artist of the month loves to create murals

Lelani Bischoff a Bluffton High School senior, is the October Icon artist of the month.

Lelani has taken Art one, Design one, Ceramics one, Photography one, Photography II (currently) and Mural/Crafts (currently).

"After high school I plan to study Botany at a college in Ohio - either Kent State, Ohio Wesleyan or Ohio University," she said.

Speaking about her art style, Lelani said: "I took Latin my freshman and sophomore year with Magistra Hoff, and loved it. Mythology was one of my favorite topics that we went over in class, so when Magistra asked me to paint Hermes, the Greek Messenger God, in the hallway outside her door, I was thrilled."

"I love mural painting. I didn't take any art classes that I painted in last year, so holding a brush and getting paint all over myself again feels great. Plus I get to listen to music. It's a nice break in my school day."

Vickie Garmon is Bluffton High School's art teacher.
