Student Art a Collection of Talent

Prominently displayed in the Janice Charach Gallery, adjacent to the lobby of the JCC, several Frankel Jewish Academy students displayed an eclectic and interesting panoply of artwork across various spectrums, including painting, photography, ceramics, woodworking, and logo design.

Infusing energy and creativity into their work, students embraced distinct colors, shapes, styles, sizes, and functions to make each piece draw attention to the workmanship and uniqueness of the individual artist.

With thanks to the gallery staff, especially Director Kelly Kaatz and Art Coordinator Natalie Estep, the artwork was reviewed and Jurors’ Choice Awards were presented in each category.
