Washingtonville High School hosted the annual Art and Film Festival on Friday, May 12, and Saturday, May 13. Students’ work from throughout the year was displayed along the hallways for families, friends and everyone from the Washingtonville community to enjoy.
“Presenting your work is part of the learning process,” said Kateri Ruebenstahl, art teacher. “This gives students the opportunity to showcase work that came from their heart and be proud of themselves. It also allows them to gain inspiration from each other.”
In addition to the artwork, the National Art Honor Society created buttons and drew portraits of guests as a fundraiser. Students were also face painting in the courtyard.
“I love art,” said senior Vittoria Guarino. “Whenever I start a project it never ends how I think it will end. The work develops over time and that's what I think I really like about it.”
“Not a lot of artists get recognition for their work,” said senior Avery Kane. “These pieces are all amazing and it is nice to give them the shout-out they deserve.”
Over 20 student films were shown as well. Click here to view the complete reel, along with the individual films.
