Aaren Arias, a fifth-grade student at Nathaniel Woodhull Elementary School, is the William Floyd School District artist of the month for November.
Eileen Randazzo, Aaren’s art teacher, describes him as a “talented artist” who always puts forth his best work and puts great care and effort into his projects.
His work has a permanent place at Nathaniel Woodhull as his Paul Klee inspired work, “Fish,” was selected for permanent display in the school art gallery as a first grader. He also contributed his talents to a rainforest mural completed last year by the fourth- and fifth-grade art club students.
“It’s really fun and I have always loved doing it,” said Aaren regarding his passion for art. “Seeing all of the colors in video game art and seeing how they were created really got me into it.”
Aaren’s artistic abilities have also been recognized beyond the William Floyd School District, as his artwork was displayed at the annual Suffolk County Art Leaders Association annual children’s art show at Babylon Town Hall last winter. Congratulations, Aaren!
