NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. New Rochelle High School Advanced Placement (AP) art students Mackenzie Lipman and Hudson Apotheker are two of several who have their artwork on display as part of a current exhibit at the Museum of Art and Culture, located in the new wing of the high school.
I get the feeling of relief that what Ive done overall can be achieved, said Apotheker of having his artwork on display. Finally being done and working with the material, its good fun.
The students who are exhibiting their work are 3-D design students, Lipman Nicole Csenge and Jose Valle, and drawing and 2-D design students, Apotheker, Robin Berk, Javier Corona, Alex Farias, Alex Kaufman, Juan Matias, Liam OLeary, Madeline Slade, Caroline Stoerger and Zack Scheinfeld. New Rochelle High School art teachers, Scott Seaboldt and Joanna Schomber, are coordinating the exhibit, according the Museum of Arts and Culture Director Theresa Leghorn.
Its nice to be able to see how everyone sees the work that is being done, said Lipman. You can see how it all pays of in a show like this.
Students are responsible of creating three portfolios. These include drawing (including painting, printmaking, and mixed media), two-dimensional design (such as graphic design, typography, digital imaging, photography, collage, fabric design, weaving, illustration, painting, printmaking), and three-dimensional design (including traditional sculpture, architectural models, apparel, ceramics, three-dimensional fiber arts or metal work).
The exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The AP program is administered nationally by College Board.
New Rochelle High School offers 27 AP courses, with AP studio art designed for students who are seriously interested in the practical experience of art. AP studio art is not based on a written exam, instead, students submit portfolios for evaluation at the end of the school year. Thousands of portfolios submitted nationally each year for review by college, university and secondary school art instructors using rigorous standards, according to information provided by Leghorn.
