Art Students Awarded at Hawai‘i Convention Center

On Sunday, April 24th, four Island School elementary students traveled to Honolulu as guests of the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. They were honored at an awards ceremony for the Hawai‘i Convention Center Student Art Exhibition 2016.

Kindergarten students Lilia Akuna, Lana Bold, and Jayden Putman and fourth grade student Mark Fitzgerald were among 96 elementary students from around the state who will have their artwork displayed at the Convention Center for the next year. Their paintings, representing the theme "Celebrating Hawai‘i with My Family and Friends," will hang in the Center's Pa Kamali'i Courtyard through March 2017.

Congratulations to them for their hard work and creativity! Congratulations also to their teachers, Penny Nichols and Becky Snowden, for their inspiration and guidance.

Artwork was displayed like this on four walls surrounding an atrium.
