After two years away, Verona High School students will once again show their creative talent through this year’s Creative Arts Festival on Wednesday, June 1 from 7 to 9 p.m. VHS graduates, students, and all other members of the community are welcome to attend this event at Verona High School.
Overseen by Helene McKelvey-McLaughlin, and prepared with the additional help of students from the VHS National Art Honor Society (NAHS) and Capstone Program, the Creative Arts Festival will showcase work from Juliet Carvajal’s Drawing, Painting, Collage, and Ceramics & Mosaics classes, Christine Sciacchitano’s Digital Photography and Animation classes, as well as digital art from Ms. McKelvey-McLaughlin’s Digital Illustration, Image Development, and Fashion Design classes. Works from Jason Atkins’s STEAM, STEM, and Fabrication & Design classes will be displayed as well. Hand-crafted jewelry made by students from the National Art Honor Society can be bought throughout the showcase; the money will go towards the Suicide Prevention Fund. The student artwork exhibit will be located in the New Gym.
VHS music and theater departments will also be participating. Starting off the live performances will be the Choral ensemble at 7:05 in the cafeteria. The VHS Spotlight Players, advised by Steven Munoz, will also be performing short “One Act” plays beginning at 7:30 in the Learning Commons followed by band ensembles.
The organizers of the Creative Arts Festival would like to give special thanks to all who could make this event possible: VHS Principal Joshua Cogdill, teachers, students, and attendees. Additional thanks are extended to the seniors participating in Capstone and the NAHS, as well as the teachers in the Arts, Music, and STEM departments for volunteering their time. We hope to see you here!
