Two spectacular pieces from East Islip High School student Lauren Holmes will be the featured artwork for font and back cover of the district’s 2022-2023 calendar. Holmes, who is currently enrolled in Dan Figliozzi’s Advanced Placement art class and Heather Toomey’s digital imaging and design course, won first place this year in the digital media category at the Suffolk County Art Leaders Association show.

“Lauren is phenomenally talented,” Figliozzi said. “She started the year off in AP drawing on her iPad with her finger. She made gorgeous invented landscapes with her finger! I am so impressed by this. She used the Procreate app to create her works. Throughout the year, we focused on lighting, depth and color to evoke mood. I am incredibly proud of her and this body of work she made.”

“Lauren is a hard worker,” Toomey said. “She excelled in digital imaging and design and her body of work in AP art was remarkable. She plans to continue in art next year and I see a bright artistic future for her.”
