Linden Students Learn About Hispanic Artists

LINDEN—Hispanic heritage students in Mrs. Rodriguez’s class recently created the Linden High School Hispanic Art gallery. Students studied the lives and works of various Hispanic artists. Each student replicated the work of their chosen artist with acrylics on a canvas medium.

The exhibition was a collaborative effort between teachers of Linden High School who supported the students in the research, writing, painting techniques and the technology used to present the final project.

Through this project the rich diversity of Linden High School and the community of Linden were seen through visual art which fostered an appreciation for the heritage and culture of Spanish-speaking people. The exhibition was open to the public and many members of the Linden High School family came out in support.

Three artists were selected to receive gift certificates to Barnes and Nobles. They are Jeimmy Mendez (first place), Arlyn Felix (second place), and Jianna Salgado (third place). Photo by Christine Hudak, Linden Public Schools
