Congratulations to this year’s recipient from Clarkstown North, Eric La.
Eric was selected for this award, because like Edward Hopper, exhibits unique creative sensibilities and follows his or her own artistic path—
Eric is innovative and voracious in his study of Art. He is the first student in the art department to fit 4 art classes into his junior year schedule!

Over this past week the CHSN Art Department has immersed itself in participating with a global Holocaust remembrance project, The Butterfly Project.
The goal of the Butterfly project is to commemorate the 1.5 million children killed during the Holocaust.
On February 28th, we kicked off the project with a presentation by Holocaust Survivor, Sonia Goldstein. Over 700 students listened intently as Sonia told her personal experiences in ghettos, Stutthof Concentration Camp, death marches and refugee camps. Sonia was taken to the concentration camp when she was 16, the age of most of the students in the audience. Sonia is now 93 years young, and we all valued the importance of hearing these personal accounts so that the stories may live on through us.
On March 1st, all art students returned to class, inspired to start creating butterflies. Today alone we create 860 of our total 1000 butterfly goal!
The lessons learned this week about the Holocaust, the victims, the survivors and the Righteous of Nations have been unforgettable!
The project has brought our school together in a time where tolerance and diversity are qualities we continue to foster.
