Elmont Student Artwork on Display at LICM
The artwork of 35 students from the Elmont School District is on display at the Long Island Children’s Museum throughout the month of April, emphasizing the district’s ongoing commitment to providing students with a strong fine and cultural arts program. The work is on display in the museum’s Community Gallery.
Students visited the museum on April 10, along with several teachers, parents and school administrators, who congratulated them on having their work showcased. The featured pieces, which were chosen for display by the district’s seven art teachers, were done in a variety of media and represent a range of styles and subject matters.
“It’s a unique experience for our students to be young artists and have hundreds of thousands of people see their work,” said Alice Katz, the district’s art department coordinator and an art teacher at Gotham Avenue School. “It’s wonderful for their self-esteem and shows the importance of art.”
“You may never realize the impact this event can have,” said Superintendent of Schools Al Harper to the student-artists. “People from all over the world will see your work. You never know where this might take you, so follow your passion.”
