Unity Charter School student Brayden Eppedio wins a High Distinction in Visual Arts Award during the Teen Arts Festival at County College of Morris. His award was presented for his work in glassblowing.  Bradyen has been working with the glass forming technique for over two years.  Glassblowing involves inflating molten glass into a bubble with the aid of a blowpipe. The glass is then manipulated with precision into sophisticated glassware. He is also a member of Unity’s National Junior Art Honor Society chapter.

Exploring the use of a wide array of art mediums and selecting appropriate tools for the production of works of art in a variety of art media is a part of Unity’s integrated arts program.  Students in K-8th grade all take part in integrated arts and dance.  “The integrated arts programs is an important part of what we do with students at Unity.  It complements the rigorous academic work students are doing in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts,” said Integrated Arts Teacher Jennifer Ketrow.  “Working in the arts also helps our students develop creative problem-solving skills,” she went on to say.
