New East Mural Will Be Student-Artist Collaboration

To celebrate Youth Art Month in March and the value of art education in schools, students at High School East are taking part in a school improvement project. Art students, along with East art teacher Tim Needles, will paint a mural in the front of the school with famous U.K. artist John Burgerman.
Burgerman will be coming to the school to collaborate with the students on the mural in late March. Needles was awarded a check for $500 from Smithtown Children’s Foundation, which will fund half of the project’s costs; student-artists did their own fundraising to cover the remaining portion.
