MISSION MONDAY: Creative Thinking Leads to Art Awards


Welcome to Mission Monday, a series of posts highlighting the ways North Salem students embrace the district mission of engaging in continual improvement, including questioning, defining and solving problems through critical and creative thinking.

High school students in the art department applied their creative thinking skills to embrace a challenge presented by the General Federation of Women's Clubs. Club member Karen Amann coordinated an art contest, which asked students to submit work for categories defined by a variety of artistic media.

At the district level, three students were awarded first place: Charlotte Coughlin for her intaglio print, Shayna Cuascut for her animal ink drawing and Chloe Sheth for her digital photograph.

Coughlin, Cuascut and Sheth will send their work on to compete at the state level of the competition.

Four students placed second for their submissions: Julianna Cervoni for her oil painting, Julia Colletes for her graphite portrait, Chloe DeLeo for her mixed media piece and Sarah MacLeod for her charcoal drawing.

Congratulations to all participants and winners!
