The Artisan is the long-time award winning literary-art magazine of Briarwood Christian School. This year for the first time, all sixty-four pages will be printed in full color. The magazine features over seventy of our artists, photographers, poets, and writers. Features include a piece on the odd things you will find around Briarwood and a piece on a cafe where you can adopt a cat. Our theme this year revolves around the Japanese koi pond. The koi represents strength and courage in the Japanese culture, and we want to acknowledge the strength and courage it takes for students to submit their work for all to see. Likewise, the koi pond brings together fish of all colors as well as other species such as frogs and dragonflies and pond skimmers. In the same way, our magazine showcases all sorts of talents and personalities.
