The artistic talent of 15 students from the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District was on display at the Art Supervisors Association's (ASA) 2019 Nassau All-County Art Exhibition, Sunday, March. 10. The event took place at Roosevelt Hall at Farmingdale State College and honored more than 1,200 students from kindergarten through grade 12 who have demonstrated excellence in a wide variety of two-dimensional visual art forms including drawing, painting, printmaking, computer graphics and photography.
In its efforts to nurture young artists, ASA also presented senior Melanie Aguilera, along with nearly 50 other graduating seniors, a scholarship during a special Scholarship Awards Ceremony that preceded the exhibit.
Students who were selected to showcase their artwork included Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School kindergartner Austin Zhang and second graders Violet Acerra and Emma Kim; James H. Vernon School third grader Eva Crassa and sixth graders Elyse Corey and Talia Delvalle; Oyster Bay High School eighth graders Kaleigh Bosch, Ella Cortes, and Paige Sweeney; freshmen Sabrina Rezk and Joan Olivero; sophomores David Ford and Carleigh Keehner, junior Brenda Perez Pelaez and senior Melanie Aguilera.
According to Mr. Anthony Femino, K-12 Fine and Performing Arts Supervisor for the District, the event “provided an opportunity for the community to appreciate the type of work students create through a robust K-12 sequential visual arts education. We congratulate our students and commend our teachers Mr. Scott Boris, Ms. Maria Randazzo and Ms. Stephanie Miley at Oyster Bay High School; Ms. Karen Crowley at James H. Vernon School and Ms. Meredith Brustman at Theodore Roosevelt School for their expertise, guidance and support.”
