 “The future belongs to a very different kind of person with a different kind of mind – creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and meaning makers. These people will now reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys.”

Daniel H. Pink, a Whole New Mind

Welcome to another exciting and enriching year of high school art! The art room is a place where exploration, problem solving and collaboration are embraced. In order to be successful, students are encouraged to work hard and take risks. As an artist and art educator, it is my pride and honor to be working with the talented students of The Claire & Emmanuel G. Rosenblatt High School! Look through the different classes on the left to see many examples of student work.

We always need volunteers in the art room and the ceramics room. If you are interested, please contact me. We also welcome any art supplies that you would like to donate to our program.

Thank you for visiting our site!

Footwear by Kobi Levi    
A field trip to The Sandler Center

On January 13, 2017 Mrs. Anita Schwartz’s High School Studio Art Elective class was treated to a very special field trip to The Sandler Center. Israeli artist and shoe designer Kobi Levi personally welcomed them to see his exhibition of handmade, highly creative shoes. Kobi Levi generously encouraged our students to try on any shoes in the exhibit. It was so much fun to try on shoes that had been designed for Madonna, Lady Gaga and Whoopi Goldberg!

Kobi Levi has said:”In my artistic footwear design the shoe is my canvas. The trigger to create a new piece comes when an idea, a concept and/or an image comes to mind. The combination of the image and footwear creates a new hybrid and the design/concept comes to life. The piece is a wearable sculpture. Most of the inspirations are out of the "shoe-world", and give the footwear an extreme transformation. The result is usually humoristic with a unique point of view about footwear. All the pieces are hand-made in my studio."

Special Thanks to Sue Harrington and The Sandler Center for giving us this wonderful and enriching opportunity.

High School Art

At Rosenblatt high school, we prepare our students for the 21st century with a rigorous and relevant art education program. The Visual Arts Program encompasses painting, drawing, mixed media and a new ceramics program. Our production intensive art classes also include art history, criticism and the study of aesthetics.

           Through the Fine Arts, we encourage creativity, develop critical thinking and teach fundamental elements and principles of art and design. Our Visual Arts Program enhances our student's academic achievement,  social /emotional development and civic engagement.

                      Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork.

           The intrinsic pleasures and stimulation of the art experience do more than sweeten an individual's life; they can connect people more deeply to the world and open them to new ways of seeing.
