National Art Honors Society Holds Arts Gala


LIVINGSTON, NJ- Students and guests gazed upon creative artwork that filled the National Art Honors Society’s Arts Gala at Livingston High School in the cafeteria Thursday after school. The National Art Honors Society (NAHS) is dedicated to incorporating students’ artistic abilities, while also fundraising money that will be donated to various causes during the year.

During the Gala, students painted with friends, created ice cream sundaes and entered drawings for prizes, while looking around at all of the work created by other students throughout the year. Guests also watched a digital slideshow of the AP Photo/Studio Art work of students in the school. Click HERE to see it on the LPS website.

Students in the NAHS donated prizes to the society that were raffled off to participating guests. Prizes this year included gift cards to various restaurants throughout the town, such as: Chipotle, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks.

The event raised a large sum of money that will be donated to The Smile Train. The ceiling tiles with painted on cartoon characters will be donated to the Pediatric Wing for St. Bernard’s Hospital for sick children who need something to brighten their day.

“This is our first time doing double charity at an event, raising funds and painting ceiling tiles for a local hospital,” said Mrs. Majzner, who was running the event for the school as well as being the advisor for the society. “The line is out the door for people to come inside.”

“The Art Gala was a great way for students to donate time and money for a great organization, while also having a great time,” said Adam Geffner, a board member of the NAHS and a student at Livingston High School.

The society said that the Art Gala was everything it hoped for and that it will be added to the extensive list of events hosted by them during the school year.
