UHS Art Students Reach For the Stars!

As part of a new initiative, Unionville High School Students in Ms. Noelle Porco's art class have the opportunity to gain experience working with “clients.” Unionville Elementary School’s librarian Ms. Rita Langdon is one of those clients.

UES alumni Amala Seshachar, Sophie Rissmiller, and Kylie Brown were paired with Ms. Langdon, UES Librarian, for a much desired mural in the UE library. The girls were able to complete this project with the help of Mr. Whitesel, Director of Facilities, and the wonderful facilities department at UES.

Ms. Langdon said the students “came to view the space and listen to my vision, and then submitted thumbnail sketches for my input. Then they diligently, responsibly, and with artists' eyes, created this amazing mural. In addition to the beautiful mural Sophie, Amala, and Kylie have contributed to our school which just draws you into the stars, they have also inspired UE students who deem themselves artists, and have stated that they too want to come back to UE as high school students and contribute to the art filled atmosphere which is UE.”

This was a great opportunity for the high school art students to gain semi-professional experience. Be sure to check out the mural at Unionville Elementary School if you have the chance!
