For junior and National Art Honor Society president Keely Bluett, art is something that runs in her blood.
“My family has always been kind of artistic,” she said. “I get it mostly from my dad, that type of mindset.”
Despite growing up in a family where art has been prevalent, Bluett didn’t come into her own artistic ability until she reached junior high. In seventh grade, she joined the art club, and in eighth grade, she collaborated on a mural for the school with a team of students.
As she came up to the high school, Bluett started off in an entry-level art class. As the years have progressed, she’s continued her art education with at least one art class every year, and has gone through the ranks of Red Lion’s NAHS chapter to become its president this year.
