East Leyden Winter Art Show

I LOVE getting the chance to display student art at the East Leyden art show each year.  Not only does it give me a chance to display some of the AMAZING work of my students, but it also lets me check out the work of former students.  Hester students are so lucky to have such an amazing art department open to them in high school.

AP Art: Students that have taken 3 or more art classes that work to put together an art portfolio to submit for college credit.  We had 4 Hester alum featured in the show: Alejandro Martinez, Alyssa Guillu, and Sara Snopek & Sebastian Portillo.  I am so proud of these students!

Alyssa is a senior and is planning to major in biochemistry next year.  She said that amid her 6 AP art classes, she love to have art in the middle of her day as it gives her some peaceful reflective time. 

Gerardo Villa was at the opening reception and took me around to see three of his artworks on display.  He is a junior this year and explained to me that he wants to go into astrophysics after high school - go Gerardo!  Notice that ribbon? Gerardo won a best in show award for that piece!

The following works are from current Hester students:

The rest of these works are of Hester alum - look at how many of our students continue to pursue their love of art in high school!
