RAHWAY — Recently, students of Rahway High School art teacher JoAnne Campanelli studied the stained glass used in European cathedral windows and replicated the technique using colored tissue paper to adorn the windows of the hallway outside of the art studio.
These attractive windows, however, were not created by art majors with multiple years of study, but rather by students taking Survey of the Arts, a full-year exploratory course that includes terms in Introduction to Art, Introduction to Theatre, The History of the Broadway Play, and Music Appreciation. This new course allows students to meet the arts requirement for graduation while also discovering an area where they might choose to take further elective courses.
