Tap, tap, tap. Reverberating across the field, the beat of the drum echoes throughout the entire ensemble, their feet imitating the staccato pulses. Each student intently focused on staying in form, keeping their upper bodies as still as a statue while their lower bodies move in sequence. From their first rehearsal 3 months ago, to their most recent rehearsal...
Every day, Jesuit's halls combine two unlikely things: artistic masterpieces and teenage boys. Everywhere you turn in the school, you will find a new, interesting piece, and now you can find even more. The Jesuit Dallas Museum opened their newest art exhibition, David Bates & Texas Artists on, Thursday, September 22nd. The exhibition features the acquisition of David Bates, Man with Gold...
A nervous actor walks through the long, dark hallway up to the stage. The bright lights flash on. The actor stands, alone, in front of the directors, with a few precious minutes to prove himself worthy of a role.

Reflectionists like renowned painter JD Miller channel the energies around them and use art to describe these ineffable feelings. On April 22nd, Miller opened up his creative...
Artist.  You can't spell artist without "i" and "start," appropriately so.  Physically starting the creative process of crafting art is the hardest part for an artist.  The vision. The preparation. The canvas.  These are all worthless without the first sketch, the first stroke, the first click, the starting points to creating masterpieces.  The only difference between a good artist...
Stepping into the MADI museum downtown, the surroundings appear more like a magic show than an art gallery. Loud, bold artwork explodes from every hidden crevice (even the restrooms).
