Farmingdale, NY - November 8, 2017 - Farmingdale School District students recently participated in the Village of Farmingdale’s Cultural Arts Day as part of a District initiative to promote students’ creativity. Farmingdale School District teacher Ms. Amanda Sharp and Farmingdale High School Art Honor Society students Skyler Francois and Carlos Nunez collected more than 50 pieces of student artwork for display in the outdoor showcase from each of the District’s four elementary schools. The students’ work represented various artists and art techniques including Picasso, Van Gogh, Impressionist painting and Japanese Gyotaku Printing.
 
“There is nothing finer than to see the students come out on a Sunday afternoon with their families to view their work, take pictures, and see the smiles on their faces representing how proud they were to be a part of this experience,” said Rose M. Marvel, Farmingdale School District Director of Fine Arts. “Kudos to art teachers Mrs. Capone, Mrs. Napolitano, Mrs. O’Sullivan, Ms. Sharp, and Mrs. Weisfelner for providing such a fabulous art program to our young students on a daily basis.”
