Verona High School students will once again exhibit their creative endeavors from this year’s curricular and extracurricular activities at the high school’s annual Creative Arts Festival on Wednesday, May 29, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Parents, families, friends, VHS graduates and the community are all invited to attend the annual event, which will be held at VHS.

The event is sponsored by the VHS chapter of the National Art Honor Society, with society officers and members setting up the displays and coordinating the evening’s activities. Art teacher Terry Sherman is the faculty advisor for the event and graphic design teachers Chrissy Sciacchitano and Helene McKelvey-Mclaughlin worked with their students to create the graphic design work for the event. Graphic design student Connor Seawright designed this year’s invitation/poster.

All displays will be set up in the New Gym. They include: art, fashion, graphics, photography, CAD, STEM, STEAM, Fabrication and Design. English literature and world language projects will be on view as well. Art students will be doing hand and face painting and leading a bracelet making workshop to benefit Minette’s Angels, a Verona non-profit foundation supporting breast cancer patients and survivors. Student made jewelry will also be on sale. In addition, F.N. Brown art teacher Joni Jasterzbski and VHS students will be painting ceramic Hearts of Hope.
