CLARK, NJ - On May 21 Arthur L. Johnson held its Annual Art Show. Created over 20 years ago by the art teachers at the high school, ALJ’s Art Show serves as a platform for creative students to showcase their artwork made throughout the school year.

Many people including teachers, students, parents, and artists arrived in the school’s IMC to view the talent of both students and their teachers at this year's show.

Arthur L. Johnson’s Art Show differs from usual art shows, as it includes pieces from various courses that allow students to explore their talents using various forms of media. The artwork created by over 100 students was displayed  throughout the room by art teachers, Mr. Klimchak,  Mrs. Gossman, Mr. Marcin, and Mr. Terhune.
