Paintings, drawings and photographs created by Middlesex County Arts High and Arts Middle School students will be on display at the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North 5th Avenue, Highland Park for the month of January 2017. The work is in the meeting room. Three students from Highland Park are included in this exhibit: Talia Fishman, from Highland Park High School and Olga Pirdruchna and Tara Shukla from Highland Park Middle School.
The exhibit features work completed by gifted and talented students who participated in the Middlesex County Arts High or Arts Middle School. The programs, now in their 37th year, offer advanced arts classes in creative writing, dance, instrumental music, vocal music, acting and visual arts to students from public, private, and home schools in Middlesex County. Students, admitted to the program through audition, are released from their schools one afternoon each week during the spring semester to participate in the various courses that are taught by professional artists.
