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 for the month of January. The work is in the meeting room and the Main Hall display case.
The exhibit features work completed by gifted and talented students who participated in the Middlesex County Arts High or Arts Middle School. Highland Park High School students Talia Fishman and Edan Blank have work in the show as well as Highland Park Middle School students, Grace Budd-Cording, Gwyneth Gherzan and Martin Mann. The programs, now in their 39th year, offer advanced art 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.
