Huntington High School’s Art Honor Society recently sprang into action when the organization’s members worked to create “arctic animals” and attractive snowflakes and decorated the hallway wall at Washington Primary School for its book fair.
The Art Honor Society is always looking to spread its love for art in all its forms across the district and into the community. So when Washington School Principal Michelle Richards reached out for help with the building’s “Artic Adventure” themed book fair, Ms. Valerio and the group’s members responded with a burst of creativity.
Teacher Kim Valerio is the Art Honor Society's faculty advisor.
The finished hallway display is gorgeous. Many Art Honor Society members contributed to the project and a group that included Beanna Cumella, Josie Fasolino, Paige Mangan, Karley Matthews, Caitlyn Palermo, Daniela Ramos and Rocio Trujillo put the display in place for everyone to enjoy. Ms. Valerio and the group were assisted at the site by Washington School art teacher Maria Mazzola.
Erik Flores, Josie Fasolino, Viviennne LaVertu, Naysa Escobar, Shyann Maragh, and Niurca Chabla-Leon created artic animals and many others made paper snowflakes. Washington School students, teachers and parents loved what the high school teenagers produced.
Prospective Art Honor Society members must be currently enrolled in an art class and have previously taken at least one class. Candidates must possess a grade of 90 or better in art. Two letters of recommendation, including at least one from an art teacher must accompany the membership application.
Existing members of the organization must participate in at least one bake sale per quarter and at least one Art Honor Society project by mid-year to maintain their membership.
The organization holds meetings for members on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month after school in room 005. For more information send a message to Ms. Valerio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
