Ariana Velazquez is an incredibly well-rounded talent who thrives in the classrooms at Patriot High School. Ariana is a humble, creative, and brilliant artist who loves to create things that inspire. She is consistently challenged by her teachers and encouraged by her parents to explore and learn new styles beyond what she is used to or comfortable doing. Ariana comes from an artistic family, that is very supportive of all her endeavors.
Each semester, she participates in events that expose her to new opportunities and challenge her to be a better artist. Last summer, she performed with the Fauquier County Theatre production of “The King and I.”
Her love for art is not one-dimensional. She is passionate about learning and developing her skills in acting and photography. “Art allows me to experience many cultures and genres. It allows me to capture people and life the way I envision them in that moment,” says Ariana. Her preferred form of artistic expression is sketching. She loves to see her work as it evolves on paper.
Ariana is not only focused on creating beautiful things; she is also interested in protecting her ideas. In the near future, she plans to pursue a degree in Marketing and Communications to assist her in exposing her work in different business environments.
