On Sunday, March 12th, 9 Salk students showed off their incredible artistic talents at one of the largest and most prestigious art shows of the year. The Art Supervisors Association hosted its 12th annual All-County Art Exhibition at Farmingdale College. There were hundreds of participants from Levittown and other districts whose beautiful work was viewed by people from all over Long Island. The artists featured in this exhibition ranged in age from Kindergarten to grade 12. Several high school seniors were awarded with scholarships.
The art teachers had a difficult decision to make when they were asked in January to select their top 3 students to participate in this exhibition. The chosen students were all ambitious and talented artists, and the artwork clearly reflected their hard work. The projects ranged in medium from pencil drawings, to charcoal and colored pencil, to watercolor and tempera paintings. The enormous room was filled with incredibly diverse and eye-catching works of art. It certainly was a major achievement for all students and teachers involved in the process.
At Salk, we are very proud to congratulate our talented students who were selected to have their work displayed at this exhibition
