A vast array of work created by students in grades kindergarten through 12 will fill the high school gym with paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, jewelry and photography. 

A highlight this year includes two print making workshops with Eastchester High School National Art Honor Society members teaching interested community members how to print a monotype. 

There will be a separate workshop for children that will explore several types of printmaking methods. 

Those who participate will leave with their monotype and a reusable Arts Festival 2016 shopping bag. Sign up by emailing
