A blank wall is being transformed into a flowing art mural by members of the Holmdel High School National Art Honor Society (NAHS), a group of 10th, 11th and 12th graders who have taken two semesters of art in the high school and submitted a portfolio for review.
The mural is a collaboration of 16 honor arts society members. It represents all of the fine and performing arts available to every student at Holmdel High: fine arts, photography, TV production, acting, music, dance, graphic design, and fashion.
Art Teacher and NAHS Advisor Alana Lazar said that each person contributed their own design for the mural, and the ideas were then combined into the final piece. The wall was blocked out with sketches before the permanent paint display was started. "Now when you enter the Lower Commons ( “the pit”) you see a whimsical representation of both the creative and technical arts featured at Holmdel High School," she said.
