NAHS Art Show to be Held in Hills Library


By Afi Ibragimov and Milana Shindelman

After a month of showcasing the schools’ best artwork, the NAHS is hosting its annual art show on March 28th, from 6 to 8 PM in the media center.

The National Art Honor Society is a club where students who excel at art have a chance to showcase their talents. They create artwork that is displayed throughout the school and do community service like giving Valentine’s Day cards to nursing homes and donating toys to children during the holiday season. 

NAHS is presenting artwork in the media center for the month of March, which is also Youth Art Month, or YAM for short. The initiative is intended to demonstrate the student’s artistic abilities and to develop a wider appreciation for art among the school community.

The students involved are all NAHS members. In total there are 63 students, who each have to display two or more of their best pieces. The AP students present a large group of the concentration pieces, often taking up a full side of one of the walls. A concentration piece is a medium in which the artist excels at and typically makes art in that medium and subject.

The night of the show is open to everyone, where there will free food and snacks. Those who attend will also be able to vote on one of several panel paintings that the NAHS students have been working on over the past couple weeks. The group that receives the most votes will win a collection of art supplies and materials.

“Awesome opportunity for the entire school community to view the artwork of talented peers,” said Marie Tripp, one of the advisors of the program.

Gabriela Celi, a sophomore, says, “I think it’s really great to be in NAHS. We’re all are a community because we’re creative. We all have a great time whenever we’re together and when we do different types of projects.”
