VHS students will once again exhibit their creative endeavors from this year’s curricular and extracurricular activities at the high school’s annual Creative Arts Festival on Wednesday May 30 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Parents, families, friends, VHS graduates and the community are all invited to attend the annual event which is sponsored by the VHS chapter of the National Art Honor Society, with society officers and members setting up the displays and coordinating the evening’s activities.

Art teacher Terry Sherman is the faculty advisor for the event and graphic design teachers Chrissy Sciacchitano and Helene McKelvey-McLaughlin created the graphic design work for the evening.

Displays will be set up in the two gyms. In the new gym, art, fashion, graphics, photography, English literature and world language projects will be on view. Art students will be doing free hand and face painting. Bracelets, handmade by VHS art students, will be sold as a fundraiser to benefit Minette’s Angels, a Verona non-profit foundation supporting breast cancer patients and survivors. In addition, F.N. Brown art teacher Joni Jasterzbski will be painting Hearts of Hope.

In the old gym, CAD, STEM and STEAM fabrication and design projects created by Jason Atkins’ students will be on display. At 8 p.m, CO2 Dragster Racing by the Engineering Club (a STEM project) will begin in the old gym. Throughout the night, the Engineering Club will be selling organic freshly popped popcorn, with the proceeds going to Minette’s Angels.

The evening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the front lobby with vocal performances by VHS students under the direction of Sean Clancy and Judy Szybist. Instrumental performances will begin at 8:30 PM, under the direction of Erik Lynch, Taylor Reed, and Max Morden. At 8:30 PM, the VHS Spotlight Players, under the guidance of Stephen Munoz, will perform student directed one-act plays in the Learning Commons.

The VHS art department wishes to extend a sincere thanks to Investor’s Bank for a generous grant of $5,000 for the new exhibition panels that we are using. Thanks as well go to: Clinton Glass in Verona for their donation of mirror and colored glass; the VEA for their Creative Arts Festival grant; and the SCA for the ongoing monetary support that the festival receives for supplies, decorations and materials needed each year to put the show together.
