We are so proud of our graduating seniors! They are all off to great schools where I am sure they will excel in their arts community. We are excited to share where they are heading next year. In addition, you can read in detail about three HS2AS students in the attached document: Esmé, Delia, and Deanna.
Esme Bleecker- Adams
Attending Fordham University at Lincoln Center, full ride Accepted with scholarships to School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Alfred University, SUNY Purchase, Maryland Institute College of Art, Fordham University, Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College
About the Artist: My first session of HS2AS was summer 2015, and I love it here. Mostly I like drawing and painting, as well as amateur sewing, and absolutely anything involving bright colors. I am inspired by Sol LeWitt and am in love with Impressionism, and when I grow up I want to be an art teacher.
Attending Cooper Union, partial ride
Accepted with scholarships to Rhode Island School of Design, Cooper Union, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Alfred University, SUNY Purchase, Maryland Institute College of Art.
About the Artist: My work often borrows from art history to raise questions about how we live in our own time. I am interested in exploring the relationship between the individual and society. I am very passionate about painting, but often I find that other mediums are more conducive to expressing my ideas.
Deanna L. Cepeda
Attending Pratt Institute, full ride through the High Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)
Accepted with scholarships to School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design, School of Visual Arts, Maryland Institute College of Art
About the Artist: In my work, I concentrate on objects, figures, and spaces. I want to take a step away from creating conceptual work to better understand the physical world around me. I incorporate different ways to make the work seem interesting to me and the viewer whether it be the composition, color, media or technique.
