Our Art students are finishing up Adrinkra prints in celebration of the African culture. Adinkra are visual symbols, originally created by the Ashanti of Ghana. Each student chose specific symbols, each with their own meaning, to represent them in a colorful cloth display. The unique symbols and concepts selected by each student sought to convey their individual emotions, making them truly personal.
Art students who did not choose to make an Adrinka print are completing another unique project. These students created Oaxacan sculptures, called alebrijes. These creature sculptures are colorful and full of intricate patterns in their design.
The Art department previously hosted an art exhibit at The West Caldwell Library, displaying the student's amazing artwork. Members of the community were mesmerized by the students' work during the month-long exhibit. We are looking forward to exhibiting the graduating seniors' work throughout the school, as well as other students’ work.
