Featured Arts: Fine Arts Festival – A Community Favorite!

The Fine Arts Festival was a great success last week at NHS! Student works in various media and sculpture were on display from the Elementary Level through High School AP Art . In addition, the HS Art Club created another fabulous puppet with the support of a NEF grant.

For the first time, NSAS presented art scholarships to two students from the 5th grade. Students, one from Cole and one from Vinal, were chosen from a field of submissions. Students were asked to answer the question “Art is?” and could respond in a variety of ways. The winners each received a certificate to participate in an art education class at the South Shore Art Center.

High School student art awards were handed out by the HS art teachers and a special recognition was given to Mr. Paul Papadonis who retires from NHS this year. The Fine Arts Festival is sponsored by the Norwell High School PTO under a grant by the Norwell Cultural Council and the Norwell Scholastic Arts Society (NSAS).

Great job everyone!
