Congratulations and Good Luck to entrants of the Center for Safety and Change Poster Contest

Earlier this month, representatives from the Center for Safety and Change came in to present to the Drawing and Painting, Art IV and Design and Illustration students.  Students learned valuable information on issues surrounding domestic/relational violence against both females and males.

Students were then invited to submit work to the annual poster contest calling for an end to this societal problem.

Congratulations to Sarah Placide, Alexa Laquidara, Haley Mendick, Melanie Gatchalian, Grace Chang, Alexandra Wang, Rebecca Straniere, Grace McInerney, Samantha Sobel, Samantha Pollak, Tianna Powell, Anaya Velez, Kaitlyn Fudge.

The Robot Project is Underway

This week, Art students from Clarkstown High School North have been collaborating with students from Bardonia Elementary and Valley Cottage Elementary around the topic of Robots.

North students guided their younger peers in thinking about the form and functions of robots.  As students worked together they discussed details ranging from materials the robots would be made of to emotions they might emulate.

Preliminary drawings were made by the elementary school students.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Art teachers Nancy Diamond (CHSN), Jen Bini (Bardonia Elementary) and Frank Millilo (Valley Cottage Elementary) will continue to work behind the scenes to assist students through the next phases of this collaboration.

During the next phase of the project the high school students will use the drawings from their elementary school  partner to create their interpretation of the robot.

In March the students will collaborate again, this time via Google Hangouts and Google Classroom, to discuss how the interpretations by the high school students are going.

Highlights from this project will be on view at the CCSD Technology Showcase on Thursday, March 2.

The final phase of this project will be an exhibit of works from both the elementary and high school students at the Chestnut Grove Offices this summer.

Special thanks to CHSN senior Stephen Campanella for his enthusiasm and drive in pursuing this project!

Stay tuned!
