Luz Diaz-Pichardo, a seventh-grade student at William Floyd Middle School, has been selected as the student artist of the month for February. Luz is a student in Stephanie Taisler’s and Timothy Kosta’s art classes and excels in various mediums.
A soft-spoken student who emigrated from the Dominican Republic when she was five years old, Luz’s artwork is inspired by her dreams. “Art is not what you see, but what you make others see,” she said.
“I believe Luz’s artwork speaks a message to the world,” said Ms. Taisler. “She has a true artistic gift and I am honored to foster her visual talents.”
Luz’s work will be submitted to the New York State Art Teachers Association (NYSATA) Portfolio Day this spring.
