The William Floyd School District Art Department recently welcomed members of the William Floyd community to the annual districtwide art show, in which student artwork from each school K-12 was displayed at a reception held at William Floyd High School.
“The districtwide art show is a culminating art exhibition combining all grade level of artists from K-12,” said Theresa Bianco, chairperson, Visual Arts, William Floyd School District. “The artwork reflects our art curriculum based on the ‘New York State Standards for the Visual Arts,’ including STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics) related artwork, multicultural works, three-dimensional pieces, as well as college- and portfolio-based pieces. Our families who see the show learn how students in kindergarten enhance and grow their skills all the way up until their high school years.”
At the event, which was attended by more than 400 people, National Art Honor Society students served refreshments and provided fun activities for the younger children such as face painting and games. The district’s art teachers also worked collaboratively to make this a memorable night for the student-artists and their families.
“Each year the districtwide art show has grown, along with the support and love for the arts within the walls of William Floyd,” added Ms. Bianco. “The talent and creativity of our students is always an honor to showcase.”
