29 HS Students Inducted into the National Art Honor Society
On Tuesday, November 28th, 2017, we celebrated the induction of 29 members into North Shore High School’s National Art Honor Society. The National Art Honor Society was started in 1978 by the National Art Education Association. Its purpose is to recognize students who demonstrate outstanding ability and interest in the visual arts. Members are committed to making the visual arts more visible in their school and community. Lynn Johnson and Elissa Mazzeo are co-advisors of the NAHS.
“The students who were inducted into the National Art Honor Society have demonstrated their commitment and dedication to the arts through the completion of Studio Art as well as one upper level art class with a grade of 90 or above,” said Art Teacher, Elissa Mazzeo. “They are currently enrolled in at least one additional art class.”
Mrs. Mazzeo added, “This incredible group of students exhibit a desire to develop and challenge themselves through creating and learning about the visual arts. They will help bring their passion and commitment to the visual arts outside of the high school by becoming involved in arts-related service projects throughout the district and in the local community. We are so excited to see what these students are able to create when they combine all of their artistic energy and vision together!”
Guest Speaker, JoAnne Gray, a local artist and former North Shore art teacher, inspired the students with her words and her art. She spoke of the importance of art and how her life has inspired her artistic process as well as her art work.
