HS Artists Create Connetquot Mural


The Connetquot PTA – in coordination with the high school art department, high school art teacher Daniel Figliozzi and Connetquot art teacher Elizabeth Sullivan-Gibbons – recently recruited talented art students from the high school to paint a massive mural in the elementary school’s cafeteria.

The students, including senior Bryant Weingarten, sophomore Zoe Stengel, and freshmen Jenna Bosco and Gen Imhof, submitted sketches and worked collaboratively over several months with Sullivan-Gibbons to create a fabulous painting on the wall, displaying storybook favorites such as Charlie Brown, Harold and the Purple Crayon, and various Dr. Seuss characters.

“These high school artists have dedicated their own time to create a colorful and vibrant piece of artwork,” said Connetquot Principal Deborah Smith. “The students of Connetquot have been watching their progress and seeing the artwork come to fruition. The characters seem so vivid that they have come to life due to the enormous talents of this artistic group.”
