Kristina Webb, EHS exchange student from New Zealand and a student in Mrs Ernst’s art survey class, had her art work chosen for the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation Gala Event Award. One student from each school had their artwork selected for the event, and the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation generously framed each selected piece. Note cards from the artwork were printed and handed out to each participant the night of the Gala.
Mrs. Hinshaw and Mrs. Fisk, both from the Forest Hills Public Schools Foundation Gala Committee, visited Eastern to deliver the framed artwork and note cards to Kristina and Mrs. Ernst.
April Chin, senior, won the Silver Key Award from the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. She is the only student in our district to be honored with the award. The Title of her piece is “Cleansing Cream.”
The meaning behind the painting is about the experience her cousin went through in Taiwan as a student who was over weight in high school and how he was bullied in a society that favors very skinny bodies. She portrayed food thrown at his face by students who were making fun of his body size and how he was insulted with the reaction on his face.
Congratulations to April on her achievement.
