Press release from Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School
Recently, Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School announced an initiative designed to shine an even brighter spotlight on student artwork: a project under which the school’s National Art Honor Society (NAHS) and Multiple Disabilities (MD) Program have teamed up to provide beautiful frames for the display of creations by RFH students.
Featured will be paintings and photography by NAHS and MD students. The collection will be rotated regularly, and will be featured prominently throughout the school building on an ongoing basis.
In addition, photographs of works by RFH art students at all levels will be enlarged and placed above the student locker areas.
“This project has brought warmth and enhanced the school climate,” said Special Services teacher Jennifer Dellett. “Our goal is to have all three floors at RFH filled with stimulating artwork by the end of the school year.”
The purchase of forty frames was made possible by a grant from the RFH Education Foundation. The grant request was written and submitted by Dellett and Art teacher Kristen Lanfrank, and among the framed works on display is the pencil sketch (pictured here) by sophomore Klayton Dal Pra.
For those who would like a closer view of the fabulous artwork, a “Community Art Opening” is planned for the spring of 2017. At this event, students involved in the program will provide community members with a tour of RFH and a discussion of all the art and images on display.
