“Untitled No.5.” Leo Rauf. Ballpoint pen. This is the work of Leo Rauf, just one of the many artists featured at tonight’s Spilled Ink Art and Literature show. The show will exhibit over 30 artists and writers from Ballard as well as nine musical acts.

There are a lot of talented creators in this school. After the bell rings and students are dismissed, after homework is done, and obligations of the day are through, there are many who choose to continue working on their independent passions.

These students are rappers, painters, instrumentalists, and writers who manage to fit creativity into schedules packed with homework, tests, athletics and courtship—all hurdles of teenage life.

These are people like seniors Bryce Villatoro-Thomas (Sir.us), Caleb Bantum (Miso Soup), juniors Leo Rauf, Sepia Katsoolis (responsible for Awaken Inner Art). And while it might be a few years before we see any of these names up in lights, Ballard does have the opportunity to appreciate them tonight.

The Spilled Ink Art and Literature show will be held at Ballard Branch Library tomorrow from 6-8 p.m.

The art and writing of over 30 students will be displayed, alongside nine musical acts playing throughout the night.
