Art Department

Clarkstown HS North


Be sure to check back for department announcements about contests, exhibits and a range of other opportunities!


This exhibit is the result of a collaborative project between

Mr Thompson's Social Studies classes, and Ms. Dunn's Art Classes.

Over 80 students came together to gather imagery and historical context for over African American art.

The goal of the breadth and depth of the work presented is to have the school engage with the important contributions and influences of African American s.

Looking Back at Art Department Field Trips this Fall

This fall the Art Department had the opportunity to bring students to view work in a range of venues. The IB/Art History students went to the Frick Museum where they learned about the origins of House Museums.

The Photography classes went to a gallery in Chelsea to view the work of contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama.

These unique experiences of viewing art in spaces other than the types of museums students may have been to in the past gave students the opportunity to reflect on how the way in which art is presented impacts the way in which they interact with it and respond to it.
