The exemplary artwork of K-6 students was unveiled during the opening of the 2018 Bellmore Stars Art Gallery at the Winthrop Avenue administrative offices. On April 18, 40 pieces of artwork were exhibited in matching gold frames, donated by alumnus James Perna, and admired by faculty, families and peers. Under the guidance of teachers Michelle Block and Stephen Gorey, the students expressed themselves through the mediums of watercolor, marker, collage, tempera paint and more.
Mrs. Block said the purpose of the art show is “to infuse a love of the arts while showcasing students’ best works.” Exhibitors were selected based on effort, dedication and leadership in the arts.
Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Dr. Joanne Dacek said the Bellmore Star Arts Gallery Exhibit is always an exciting event. “It is a celebration of leadership in the arts and the students’ hard work and artistic talents,” she said.
