Students’ Artwork on Display at St. Demetrios Astoria Exhibition (Vid)

ASTORIA – The opening of the annual exhibition of students’ artwork and handicrafts was held on April 19 at the St. Demetrios Elementary School in Astoria, in the special room “Nikos Andriotis.”

Approximately 250 students, from nursery to the 3rd grade, put their imagination to work and created an impressive array of paintings and handicrafts.

“Children are constantly engaged in their lessons and studying. We wanted to give them the opportunity to have fun and show their artistic capabilities with paintings and handicrafts they like to do,” Betsy Sideris, Assistant Principal, told The National Herald.

The exhibition opened to the public from 3-6 PM on Thursday and on Friday morning. As Mrs. Sideris explained, this is an in-school activity that has no financial or charitable purposes, since the children themselves, when the exhibition is over, will take their creations home as a memento.

“We make the room look like a museum, and the parents have the opportunity to come and see what their children made. They will be able to take home what they made when the exhibition is over.”

Also, the handcrafted items make a wonderful gift for mom, especially with Mother’s Day approaching on May 13.
