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 29 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 will be held at Verona High School.

The event 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 Helene McKelvey-McLaughlin and Chrissy Sciacchitano and worked with their students to create the graphic design work for the event. Graphic design student Connor Seawright designed this year’s invitation/poster.

Displays set up in the New Gym  will include: art, fashion, graphics, photography, CAD, STEM, STEAM, Fabrication and Design. English literature and world language projects will be on view as well.

Art students will be doing hand and face painting and leading a bracelet-making workshop to benefit Minette’s Angels, a Verona non-profit foundation supporting breast cancer patients and survivors. Student-made jewelry will also be on sale. In addition, F.N. Brown art teacher Joni Jasterzbski and VHS students will be painting ceramic Hearts of Hope.

The evening will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the front lobby with vocal performances by VHS students under the direction of Claire Ma. Instrumental performances by VHS students will follow. They will be under the direction of Erik Lynch and Ellis Jasenovic.

In the Old Gym at 8 p.m. there will be a Catapult Viewing and Hovercraft Demonstration. Throughout the night, the Engineering Club will be selling organic freshly popped popcorn, the proceeds going to Minette’s Angels.

At 8:30 p.m., 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 thank: 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 this event receives for supplies, decorations and materials needed each year to put the show together.
