Congratulations to Stimson students Delia Miles and Meghan Hanley whose artworks were accepted into the Nightmare on Main Street Art Contest! In its 9th year, the Huntington Arts Council was thrilled to host its Spooktacular Art Gallery Presentation of Halloween-themed artworks from students all across Long Island.
This year, Stimson 7th grader Meghan Hanley and 8th grader Delia Miles had their artworks featured in the fun-filled juried art contest. The artworks exhibited ranged from scary and silly, to creepy and beautiful, and it was a treat to see our students be accepted into this unique exhibit!
Meghan Hanley submitted an original digital image, titled Halloween Furry Friends, that captures sweet Halloween themed characters as digital drawings. As a seventh grader, Meghan enjoys spending time with her two cats, playing video games, and traveling. She can almost always be found with her sketchbook and pencil in hand, as her favorite subjects to draw are people. She has been visiting art museums since she was very young, and last year was lucky enough to visit the Louvre in Paris.
Delia Miles submitted an original colored pencil drawing titled Roses that depicts a single eye peeping through the thorny flower and petals. Delia finds inspiration from nature and the world around her as she picks up her pencils to create such interesting artworks. Delia has always loved creating art since she was young and sees it as an outlet to be creative and to express herself.
Congratulations Meghan and Delia for this prestigious recognition and congratulations and special thank you goes out to our Stimson Art Teacher, Ms. Linda Salta!
