Eco-Artists of Tomorrow: Students Go Green with Sustainable Creations

April 1, 2024a sampling of art projects mounted on a display rack

In keeping with Pine-Richland School District's sustainability initiatives, Mrs. Holly Angeloff’s eighth-grade art classes created paintings on unconventional materials that would otherwise be destined for landfills. 

After studying the designs and motifs of Native Americans and First Nation cultures, students created paintings in relief in a complex 10-step process. Each piece is a student’s self-expression of the animals and insects that personally spoke to them. Color theory and design principles were interwoven into the project.

Selected pieces by student artists Kieran Anderson, William Claycomb, Eisen Faust, Abigail Galluzzo, Sophia Giebel, Riley Goutmann, Elanyse Hernandez, Abigail Koszarek, Amelia Kubicka, Isabel Montani, Luca Napolitano, Adalei Rees, Adeline Schmitt, Anna Wojcik and Lucy Wynn will be on display at the Pine Community Center walking track from March 25 – April 30. They will also be part of the Pine-Richland Middle School Art Show on May 7.

Special thanks to retired teacher Sue Korenchack for her donation of records and Mrs. Kim Mullins, paraprofessional, for the donation of black tiles from CMU.
