SOMERS, N.Y. - The annual spring Festival of the Arts, a showcase of the diverse talents of art students from Somers schools, was held Thursday, April 28, at Somers High School. The artworks on display ranged from sculptures to photographs and were created by students K-12.
Angela Holder, the district’s art coordinator, was among the group of educators who began the festival 20 years ago, when she arrived to the area.
Dozens of pieces were displayed in the cafeteria, hallways, display cases and in front of the auditorium.
“Somers is very pro-art and very, very supportive,” she said. “The students in the program work very hard and have a very professional group of staff. They strive for the best and the kids work very hard and put a lot of work into it.”
