Senior high school student-artists have received a number of local and regional awards and invitations to display their artwork.

The portrait photography of Cooper Coyle and Luke Coyle was displayed during March at the West Babylon Public Library.

Natalie Nunez’s photograph, “Blue Fire,” on display at the Heckscher Museum of Art in Huntington through April 19, was awarded the Renzo S. Bianchi Scholarship Award during the Long Island’s Best: Young Artists reception. Her work was also selected for display at Marshs Department Store in Huntington Village during May for its illustration of the close ties between art and fashion.

Anna Fleury and Kelly Obrycki were selected to attend Adelphi University’s “For the Love of Art” Art Foundations Program, where they will take a life drawing course. This past fall, Alexandra Capobianco and Jessica Capobianco were selected to attend the same workshop.

In addition, Antonino Quintalino was awarded a first-place $5,000 annual scholarship to Dowling College. To apply for the scholarship, Antonio created a digital re-imagination of a master artwork. Antonino has accepted the scholarship offer and looks forward to continuing his education at Dowling.

The district congratulates these art students on their outstanding accomplishments.
