My Hero Academia – Season 4

By: Richard

“My Hero Academia”, a place where humans have evolved to have superpowers, sets the background of a place lurking with dangerous villains, heroic figures fighting to protect the peace, and younger generations learning to be great heroes themselves. With “My Hero Academia” already charged through season 3, the all-new, highly anticipated season 4 is soon coming! Most fans, like myself, would have some favorable moments from season 3 or in the past. Moments such as, for me, the fight of Deku against Muscular, the all remembered Sports Tournament, and of course, Mirio against Class 1-A. With the “Big-Three” just merely introduced, the community still has much to learn about Mirio, Tamaki, and Nejire. Of course, Mineta has been super hyped up for getting to work with Nejire, being the person he is. While the class still has much to learn about the Big Three in Season 4, Deku has been highly observant these past episodes.

The launch of Season 4 has been confirmed, everyone has been waiting anxiously. Plus, the brand new “My Hero Academia: Two Heroes” movie! Even though there isn’t that much information on the movie so far, it looks amazing through the trailers! And, of course, I need to mention the “My Hero Academia Justice” video game. It looks stunning with the wide selection of different characters you can choose from. Any fan would want this game! On the manga series, “My Hero Academia” has generally short manga copies in comparison to other mangas, but has been one of the most popular. Right now, on the English version, Season 3 had just been finished, but on the Japanese original version, they are way further in the series than us fans in America!

My most favorite character is probably Monoma, I know, I have terrible taste! But, you have to consider how funny he’s been past these seasons, always there to crap all over Class 1-A. And might I mention the funny and comedic times where Kendo slaps him every time he’s blurting out! The enormous fanbase of this anime has always stuck together, and it’s amazing how “My Hero Academia” has been out since 2014! That must seem like ages ago, especially me! Overall, My Hero Academia has a bright future ahead of it, and we need them to know that their fanbase is here to support them!

About the artist:

This piece of artwork is titled, “Into the Grand,” and is a narrative art piece drawn by a sixth grade student named Reyna. Reyna drew this piece to convey the look and feel of seeing the glorious, well known Grand Canyon for the first time, as she had visited Arizona prior to the beginning of the current school year that summer, and she knew it was, indisputably, something that would be engraved into her mind even as the years would pass. As the first quarter comes to an end, Reyna states, “I have really enjoyed art this quarter, and for those who have not had art yet, you can count on having a wonderful, incredibly talented teacher, as well as a great time as you explore the different innovative projects and assortment of tools of the art world.”

Intro to Art

By: Reyna and Soheni


    Everyone at this wonderful school has met—or will meet— the amazing Mrs. Gettleman, our wonderful art teacher here at Daniel Wright. She studied at the University of Illinois, studying in, (I’ll bet you didn’t already guess) art.

If you didn’t know already, every quarter in art the projects differ, but keep the main concepts the same. In each grade there are slightly different projects and materials, but all are similar, raising in difficulty as the grades progress.

  If you’re in 6th grade, you’ll get to do all sorts of fun projects such as creating clay animal/creature sculptures, painting, and learning to create depth in your art, while also getting to use cool tools along the way, like a scraper used to score clay (aka an evil bean, as Mrs. Gettleman calls it). You will have the opportunity to use items such as calligraphy pens, watercolor and acrylic paints, watercolor pencils, and prismacolor colored pencils. In quarter 2, one of the many projects 6th graders can look forward to if you have art next quarter are drawing animals.

 Alternatively, if you are in 7th grade, you will get to use similar tools for slightly different projects, revolving around more advanced skills. Furthermore, you will also learn a type of printmaking called techies linocut, meaning technology inspired print designs. This is a type of printmaking technique where you use a sheet of linoleum, which you would engrave a design onto. Then, you can apply ink to a tray, which you would then roll with your brayer (a tool similar to a paint roller, though it is made of a rubber material opposed to something cushiony) and apply to your linocut. Essentially, a linocut is like a stamp. After applying the ink, you would take your “stamp” and press it onto a sheet of paper or other material, and then peel away to reveal your design. Much like a stamp, your linocut can be used more than once.



If you want to try making a linocut at home, the items you would need are a sheet of linoleum, an assortment of blades meant for linocutting, an ink tray or piece of glass, a brayer, ink made for printmaking, a pencil, and a black sharpie. Also, keep in mind that the blades used for cutting the linoleum can be very sharp, so you may want band-aids as well!

    In 8th grade, however, it will get even more advanced. One project you may be doing is building sculptures made from wood and other materials.
