    SCHOLASTIC ART AWARDS

    The Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is a national competition recognizing teens with exceptional talent in 29 different categories of art and writing. The core values are originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. DVHS artists were among the 60,000 who entered works in the Northeast Region-At-Large division. Having competed in such a large division, the art department is especially excited this year that Delaware Valley has earned a total of 37 awards consisting of 14 Gold Keys, 11 Silver Keys and 12 Honorable Mentions. Gold Key award winning entries will proceed to national judging.

    We would like to congratulate our students for their hard work and excellence.

    BIG NEWS! DV HAS A NATIONAL ART HONOR SOCIETY

    nahs logo

    The Inaugural Induction of the DVHS Chapter of the National Art Honor Society was held on Jan 10, 2018. Twenty-six sophomores, juniors, and seniors applied and met the criteria of academic and artistic achievement. Upon their induction, students have committed to maintaining their membership by utilizing their artistic skills to contribute to school and community.

    Advisor, Dr. Irene Lantz led the ceremony. Students, Julia Thompson, Abigail Babitz, Chiara Ruggiero, Anastasia Geros, and Georgana Williams, spoke meaningfully about the purpose of the NAHS, the power of art in a community, and how we can lead with our art.

    In the words of junior, Julia Thompson, “Together, we have experience with everything from metalworking, to digital art, to painting, to ceramics. We are also learning to observe, critique, and appreciate other’s art on an advanced and sophisticated level. Most importantly, NAHS will enable us to make a positive contribution to our community in ways that are complex, creative, and beautiful.”

    The highlight of the ceremony was the presentation of the Hexagon Project, a global project demonstrating our interdependence within our society. Students shared their artistry depicting the theme “Transforming Conflict”. The hexagon shape was the unifying thread but each hexagon was uniquely created and of personal meaning to the artist.

    The Art department is excited for the promise of what our new inductees can achieve. Congratulations to:

    Seniors: Sophia Catalano, Jack Doyle, Chloe Gawel, Anastasia Geros, Carly Naundorff, Grace Riexinger, Jade Rubenstein, Ashley Skrypek, Tara Vecchio, Georgana Williams, Michelle Wolf, Olivia Wood

    Juniors: Cailin Connors, Abagail Druttman, Logan Gallagher, Alexandra Garcia, Jayda Mann, Adrianna Mojica, Chiara Ruggiero, Julia Thompson, Brianna Tonnesen

    Sophomores: Abigail Babitz, Kayley Baker, Samantha Garcia, Kaitlyn Nagrowski, Abigail Reno

    EMPTY BOWLS 2017

    It was another great year for Mrs Kaylor's Ceramics classes and the Empty Bowls project. On December 15, faculty and staff were invited to dine in the newly designed, well-lit, spacious ceramic room and enjoy a simple but delicious meal of soup. Each student created a ceramic bowl to sell for $5 for the soup to be served in. The Empty Bowls project is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger (www.emptybowls.net/). Thanks to the hard work and heart of the students and soup donations by students and local businesses, over $1100 was donated to the Ecumenical food pantry in Milford.

    artery2017

    Delaware Valley High School art students had the opportunity to move their best works from the halls of the high school to the walls of the ARTery Gallery on Broad Street in Milford for the sixth annual student show and sale “Voices of Our Youth” .

    Family, friends and community members attended the opening reception on Saturday, March 11th, to celebrate the accomplishments of the young artists and to enjoy an evening of celebration, refreshments and conversation with our students, who enthusiastically discussed their works.

    The event provides the unusual and enviable opportunity for amateur artists to have their work displayed in a professional gallery setting. Seeing their work framed and displayed in a well-lit space surrounded by other great work, feeling the energy of the crowd and sharing the moment with their friends and family was a memorable moment for everyone involved. Works are priced for sale. The student receives the proceeds; often the first time someone has paid them for their work, a very exciting and rewarding experience for any artist!
