Two Win Working Artist Awards


Two students were recognized for their excellence and hard work in the arts during a recent assembly. They are Katie Han ’19 for visual arts and James Arcoleo ’19 for technical theater and music.

Katie has exhibited hard work and dedication this trimester in AP Studio Art, according to her teacher, Wendy Staples. She has experimented with a variety of media, including painting, photography, photoshop, and film. For her AP concentration, she’s interpreted, synthesized, and appropriated existing advertisements in the media in order to portray beauty and fashion ideals, as in the example above.

James Arcoleo is being recognized for his dedication to tech theater and music. He spends two-thirds of the year helping build and run Williston’s theater and dance productions and the full year performing with the Caterwaulers. “Thank you, James, for your time and energy!” said his teacher Charles Raffetto, theater production and facilities manager.
