East Leyden Winter Art Show

Each semester Leyden puts on an art show to feature the work of the current art students in each of the art classes.  Hester is invited to display work during this show as well for 7th and 8th grade students.  It's one of my favorite shows to attend because I get to see the work of my past students and how they have grown as artists since graduating.  I am proud to say that just over 70 Hester Alum were represented in the Winter Art Show this year!  Since there were so many photos, I put them into a video, so sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!  Congrats to all the artists for their hard work! The following Hester students had work selected for this show: 7th Grade:  Andrea Gutierrez David Guzman Ernie Abdic Jason Merino Jessica DeValle Karely Garcia Mia DeLeon Nicole Fallorin 8th Grade: Amber Bautista Anna Rudka Andres Flores David Cardenas Eldin Sakanovic Erick Ramos Gabe Monarrez Hannah Stocks Jasmin Nevarez Jessica Torres
