Fresh 9.0

Join the 1978 family as we celebrate the talent and energy of our next generation of art stars. Advanced Placement Studio Art students demonstrate the skills and ideas developed, refined, and applied throughout high school to produce visual compositions worthy of college credit.

We are inspired by the savvy and skill of students from Columbia HS, Arts HS, West Essex Regional HS, Governor Livingston HS, Elizabeth HS Upper Academy and Montclair High School.
