Love to see the Art Gala still alive & well. Art Smart is one of the special experiences my children had at SJA - they loved participating and I loved teaching about art appreciation.

What a great day for our children! I loved the art show, our children are so talented.

Lucky kids!!!!

So cool!!

Awesome

AT SJA, the ARTS MATTER! 

With great enthusiasm, SJA announces the 2022 Art Gala Exhibit. This event is a time-honored tradition at our school that highlights our signature program, ART SMART, the phenomenal art instruction of our extraordinary art teacher, Ms. Visvader, and our long-standing instrumental music program, Fundamental Music. 

Join us! Students will also enjoy presentations by commissioned artist Marco Santini during school on the 19th. Marco Santinis bio can be found below: 

 Marco Santini is an award-winning NYC-based artist, fashion designer, photographer, and inventor who draws inspiration from inclusion, positivity, and language. 

In 2007, he received a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistic Anthropology at Brown University, where he was intrigued by the relationship between communication, expression, and imagery. Santini worked at branding agencies in NYC before fully committing to the arts. His geometric style is expressed through spray paint, paint markers, window markers, acrylics, magazines, textiles, and digital art.

Santini found his life’s purpose in 2018 to spread love and positivity as a Conscious Creator. He has expressed this through art, education, and volunteering. He speaks and paints at schools around the world, teaching students to explore their passions while turning negatives into positives.
